About A Thousand Doorways
Moved by the silencing of the Kurdish language by Turkish laws, storyteller Diane Edgecomb embarks on a journey of intrigue and heart to record the last Kurdish storytellers. This true account takes us to those mountain villages, forbidden to outsiders, where the true stories of their lives and of their struggle mix with startling ancient legends. Compassion and understanding open new doorways to this hidden world: a mythic landscape of shepherds, guard towers, caravans, impossible mountain passes and the mysterious eggs of an ancient tree. There is one world, but a thousand doorways – Kurdish saying
