THIS BOOK IS ABOUT:

Revolution, reflection, growing old and grumpy, being young and reckless, a greater Kurdish homeland, antimacassars of the world uniting, not going where you planned to go, knitting versus embroidery, The 25 Paintings on lockdown, thinking you are right, knowing you are wrong, two characters named He and She. And of course the PKK Took My Baby Away sung by the Kurdish Ramones tribute band. All in a land of a thousand lakes.

AND CONTAINS THE WORDS:

He:
As long as there is no flag waving.
All flag waving is wrong – whatever the cause.
All flag waving does is up the “them and us”.
All flag waving encourages hatred and war.
Flags should be consigned to the dustbin of history along with the nuclear button and single use plastics…

She:
Your naivety plunges to new depths.
Our addiction to flags is hardwired.
And if it were not flags it would be something else.
