DAWN Stories

by | Read by Baris Duyan, Ayse Eldek, Kate Reading

Fiction • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrators Baris Duyan and Ayse Eldek earnestly deliver 12 stories of love, despair, and hope in conflict-ravaged Turkey. In this debut collection by a Turkish political hostage, Duyan and Eldek recount the everyday lives of people affected by political chaos. Listeners may perceive this audiobook as highly political, but the foreword, narrated by Kate Reading, says that it "is not a political tract. It is a collection of short stories." Duyan's voice is warm, and his accent varied in the thought-provoking work "It's Not What You Think," among others. Eldek's Turkish accent adds poignancy to stories such as the titular "Seher," which translates to "Dawn," and "As Lonely As History." A fine narration of a provocative and important listen.
