What they have said about Ataturk
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, U.S. President 1937
“I obtained information concerning Mustafa Kemal from someone who knows him very well. When talking with Foreign Minister Litvinov of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, he said that in his opinion, the most valuable and interesting statesman in all of Europe does not live in Europe today, but beyond the Bosphorus, he lives in Ankara, and that this was the President of the Turkish Republic, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. ”
Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of United Kingdom, 1938
“Ataturk’s death is not only a loss for the country, but for Europe is the greatest loss, he who saved Turkey in the war and who revived a new the Turkish nation after the war. The sincere tears shed after him by all classes of people is nothing other than an appropriate manifestation to this great hero and modern Turkey’s Ata. ”
In Pursuit of a Second Life
“Novels”, says Nobel laureate novelist Orhan Pamuk, “are second lives. ” In his book,
The Naive and Sentimental Novelist, Pamuk chronicles his experience of the novels to which he has devoted his life, as both reader and writer, which he shared earlier in the Harvard University Norton Lectures where he was preceded by masters like Borges and Calvino.
The book contains some interesting observations by Pamuk, whose works have sold 11 million copies in 60 languages, on a variety of subjects from theoretical problems like fictional character, time and the texture of events to that perennial reader favorite, the relationship between the writer and his protagonists.
