Dink was a hero in Turkey. Now, finally, the English-language reader gets to read about him, with the publication of the English version of Tuba Candar's magnificent 2010 biography. The English subtitle is An Armenian Voice of the Voiceless in Turkey. Candar's brilliant method is to make this a book of voices. It is a sound tapestry consisting of dozens of voices of Dink's family, friends, and colleagues, a biography as a polyphonic oral history. -Strategic Europe
