Hatice Demir

Editor: Müren Beykan
Illustrator: Ahmet Uzun

Sometimes life lodges in the wings of a crane.

Hatice Demir, loved with her novel Kids of Acacia Square, displays her mastery of language in a poetic novella this time. Set in a village by the lake where cranes dwell, she harmoniously blends past and present, making you think about what has been lost. Steering the helm toward love and hope, she navigates the challenges of growing up, resentments, and longings without leaving anyone behind with her sincere narrative. She tells a story that listens to the sounds of nature, alluding to the reliability of the cycle of life.


Holidays Güneş spends in the village takes a different turn. The unexpectedly changing life of her deary grandfather and playmate Kamil Efe and Umut’s resentment turn her world upside down. Fortunately, she has her friends and a crane named Gün by her side thanks to the unique nature of the nearby lake. Although she finds happiness in bittersweet childhood memories of picking mushrooms and searching for eggs in the forest, picnicking under the shade of the willow tree, and her grandmother’s chickpea-leavened bread, she will not be able to escape from facing the harsh realities…
