  • I Will Never See The World Again

    Ahmet Altan

    The author of this extraordinary memoir has been sentenced to life in prison for the Kafkaesque crime of sending ‘subliminal messages’ in support of the failed coup in Turkey in 2016. This slim volume whose pages were smuggled out of the prison cell, is a moving testament to the power of literature and inner resources of the human spirit.
