I've just dashed back to Fiesta Base Camp and remarkably I have a wireless signal, is it mine? Is it someone else's?
But before I dash off to hear David Owen speaking on Ilness in Leaders I must quickly tell you that Maureen Freely the translator of Fethiye Cetin's book My Grandmother was exceptional this morning.
I'm starting to gather an understanding of something I've been on the edge of, never quite knowing the details and now I realise that actually My Grandmother is a perfect starting point. The humanitarian angle about the Armenian genocide before the political, and the fact that the book is a best-seller in Turkey and Fethiye Cetin hasn't received a single hate letter suggests that the Turkish peoples (Maureen Freely urged us to use the plural) were ready and waiting to read it too.
I did ask a question about Fethiye Cetin's safety. Maureen acknowledges that the time to be worried is when Fethiye is in court as she is at present and that perhaps the more she is known in the West the safer she may be.
There are only two things for it, firstly I must read Orhan Pamuk, Maureen Freely is his translator too, and secondly I must now hightail off to hear David Owen, the Great Hall will be packed to the rafters.
