Short Sotry

Finished December 31
A Day out for Mehmet Erbil by Louis de Bernieres
I got this lovely short story for Christmas. Set in the Gallipoli region of Turkey, it came to the author during research for his wonderful book Birds Without Wings. It tells the story of an encounter between a local man and a tourist. Inspiring and thought-provoking, it gets you thinking about assumptions and missed opportunities.
