Roger Norman (born 1948) has spent equal amounts of time living in Greece and Turkey. He was a wheelbarrow farmer on Euboia for years. In 1995, he walked from Istanbul to Athens for a Turkish–Greek charity, writing for the Turkish Daily News as he went. He now lives in Eskişehir and lectures at Anadolu University.
He is the author of four novels: Albion’s Dream (Faber, 1990), Treetime (Faber, 1997), Red Die (Sundial, 2008) and Shadowland (Sundial, 2012)
On Christmas Day we lost a fine journalist and historian with a deep love of Turkey. An intellectual who wrote with great ease, loyal, funny – and often querulous – he inspired friends and students across the world. Here, Roger Norman sifts through the tributes, and opposite, Patricia Daunt recalls happy memories of a long friendship
Roger Norman looks back over the life of the late historian and writer Norman Stone – always unconventional, sometimes difficult, frequently mischievous – who, after less-than-happy times teaching at Oxford and Cambridge and a stint as an adviser to Margaret Thatcher, chose to make his home in Turkey
A tale of two exceptional cooks: one Greek, one Turkish, worlds apart in their ways with food – but with more in common than you’d think.
‘I don’t write for others, I don’t even write for myself, I just write,’ said Yașar Kemal, arguably Turkey’s greatest novelist. Roger Norman recommends his powerful novel The Undying Grass, which tells of the Yalak villagers who walk down from the Taurus Mountains each year to harvest cotton on the baking, inhospitable plains of Çukurova.
The late Yaşar Kemal’s remarkable blend of originality, wisdom and humanity earned him universal respect. Roger Norman celebrates a remarkable storyteller with unique powers to move and inspire, especially when lamenting the modern world’s wanton destruction of ancient traditions and values
The popular appeal of Yunus Emre, 13th-century poet, storyteller and Sufi mystic, still extends from Azerbaijan to the Balkans, while in Turkey his portrait graces the 200-lira note. Roger Norman looks at the life of a man from a humble Anatolian village whose wit, wisdom and humanity live on
Roger Norman reviews ‘The Broken Road’ by Patrick Leigh Fermor and ‘Walking the Woods and the Water’ by Nick Hunt
Roger Norman salutes the incomparable style and spirit of the writer Patrick Leigh Fermor, whose masterpiece was 40 years in the making
