But something better is possible.We can choose to turn away from an uncaring world and instead build a world where we stand compassionately as one.In Together, award-winning political thinker, author and poet, Ece Temelkuran provides an inspiring manifesto for change, reveals fresh possibilities for the better world we might want to live in, and gives us a new vocabulary for the political action that the 21st century asks of humankind.Praise for Together:‘Temelkuran writes gorgeously about the human situations – from Turkey to Croatia – that demand new thinking. The insights of this book, whose tone is a potent mix of fierce urgency but unyielding calmness, make Togetheran important contribution to how politics will evolve in the era of a pandemic’ Irish Times‘Suffering a sorrow that we can overcome. Longing for a freedom that we don’t yet have. For as long as I can remember, these have been the sensations Beethoven’s music planted into my soul. More recently, reading Ece Temelkuran’s delightful Together gave me the same sensations’ Yanis Varoufakis‘Temelkuran is a brilliant writer, finding humour, hope and humanity in the darkest corners of our current malaise.It lifted my heart and my spirits’ Brian Eno‘If you read only one book this year, then this must be it.

It's the magic of Ece Temelkuran’ Roberto Saviano, author of Gomorrah‘Justly famous as an anatomist of so much that is wrong in the modern world, Ece Temelkuran here turns her attention to what is right – and it’s wonderful to discover that her arguments are not just as clear-sighted, but just as convincing’ Jonathan Coe, author of Mr Wilder and MeEce Temelkuran is an award-winning Turkish novelist and political commentator, whose journalism has appeared in the Guardian, New York Times, New Statesman, Frankfurter Allgemeine and Der Spiegel.
