A Farewell to Freedom

A debut novel by the Turkish author Kurtuluş Baştimar.

In A Farewell to Freedom, you are taken on a journey with Ahmet as he navigates the complexities of Kurdish identity in a world plagued by violence and oppression. This powerful narrative mediates on the themes of language, loss, and the human will to survive as Ahmet grapples with love, despair, and the realities of living under a fascist regime. From moments of transcendent hope to nihilistic despair, Ahmet's journey is an epic exploration of the human experience set against the backdrop of a struggle for freedom that echoes across generations.
