Synopsis: The first volume of a trilogy called "Beyond the Mountain", which describes the Yalak villagers, who come down from the Taurus mountains each year to pick cotton on the hot Chukurova plain.
About the Author: Yashar Kemal was born in 1923 in a village on the cotton-growing plains of Chukurova. He received a basic education in village schools before becoming an agricultural labourer and factory-worker. His championship of poor peasants lost him a succession of jobs, but he was eventually able to buy a typewriter and set himself up as a public letter-writer in the small town of Kadirli. After a spell as a journalist, he published a volume of short stories in 1952, and then, in 1955, his first novel Memed, My Hawk won the Varlik Prize for best novel of the year. His highly distinguished literary career has continued in this vein; his work has won countless prizes from all over the world and has been translated into several languages. Kemal was a member of the Central Committee of the banned Workers' Party, and in 1971 he was held in prison for 26 days before being released without charge. More recently, he has been placed on trial for action in support of Kurdish dissidents. Among the many international prizes and honours he has received in recognition of his gifts as a writer and his courageous fight for human rights, are the French Legion d'Honneur and the Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger. Kemal is Turkey's most influential living writer and, in the words of John Berger, "one of the modern world's great storytellers".
