Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Berji Kristin: Tales from the Garbage Hills, Latife Tekin, translated from Turkish by Saliha Paker and Ruth Christie, 1983, Turkey, NOVEL

"...Each exploitation becomes part of history; the people from the garbage hills compose songs about the blue water, write poems about the wind...Gullu Baba, an old blind man, is their spiritual leader; Honking Alhas, so named because of a nasal obstruction, is their historian; and Fidan of Many Skills leads the fight for clean water..."

(H.S., p. 290)
