A Faraway Summer

Keeping a journal of social life in the 80’s as well as telling a modern love story, Mehmet Açar in his third novel, A Faraway Summer, depicts love, dreams, leftism, the outcome of the ‘coup’ and what it was like to be young in the 80’s.

A tale of broken hearts and missed trains, all stowed away in a young man’s past.

A Faraway Summer is the story of being the ‘odd man out’ among a group of friends, and of being an anti-hero reconciled to always remaining in the background.
