Deep Mountain

A personal and political journey to the heart of the Turkey-Armenia conflict, by Turkey’s most famous female journalist. From the Armenian communities of Venice Beach and Paris, to Turkey and Armenia, Deep Mountain is a nuanced and moving exploration of the living history and continuing denial of the Armenian genocide. 

 

Encountering writers, thinkers and activists from across the Turkish-Armenian divide, Ece Temelkuran weaves together an absorbing account of the role of national myths and memories, and how they are sustained and distorted over time, both within Turkey and Armenia, as well as among the vast Armenian diasporas of France and America.

Deep Mountain is both a brilliant, personal exploration of one of the most enduring and intractable issues of our time, and an illuminating look at the part nationalism plays in the way we see ourselves and others.

“Ece Temelkuran dissects the process by which false and true national memories are created and why they are sustained … This is a book that transforms this ancient Armenian-Turkish dispute into a human drama.” (Theodore Zeldin )

"But why does 1915 matter in 2010? It was the question that Temelkuran's murdered friend, the Armenian editor, Hrant Dink, asked, and the question Temelkuran set out to answer."

The Guardian, Peter Preston.
