Dare to Disappoint Growing up in Turkey felt like it should have been a longer tale zge Samanci s early years are richly detailed as the protagonist ages though the granularity of the narrative stretches out with discrete events replaced by overarching sketches of longer periods of time and emotion This may simply be an artifact of memory disjointed and episodic recollections of early years giving way to comprehensive understandings of later phases of life This flow breaks down though near the end of the book when zge decides to break with her and her father s expectations to pursue a career meaningful to her She reaches her decision point but the audience is left with an inspiring moral on the virtue of risk taking but little evidence apart from the book in their hands as to how it unfolded for the protagonistThe narrative is snappy and funny with an informed but child s eye view of the dynamics of Turkish society in the waning days of the Cold War uite interesting are the hints and mentions of events and dynamics which go unexplored here but which tie into well known historical and current events Samanci s elementary school version of Turkish independence featuring a map with a purple blot labelled Armenian a discussion of anti leftist and Kurdish censorship sprees by authorities and a confrontation with a devout Muslim student illustrating the relatively elite western and minority perspective of the author s experience The uirks and strange perceptions of childhood are brought to life by Samanci s fluid line spare watercolor and charming mixed media collages at the opening of most chapters This is a graphic novel with precious few hard edged panels Scenes take place in isolated vignettes floating in whitespace or splashed across an entire page but never does a full page of conventional rectangles appear Never does this hinder the flow of the story rather while Samanci s figures and faces are simple and expressive her layouts add dimension and energy practically dragging the eye across the varied spreads

Review ☆ Dare to Disappoint ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Be possible to please everyone including herselfIn her unpredictable and funny graphic memoir Ozge recounts her story using inventive collages weaving together images of the sea politics science and friendship. Dare to Disappoint by Ozge Samanci is perhaps the uintessential tale of growing up in the 80s and 90s in Turkey in a middle class family There is so much here that resonates with the experiences of many Turks who grew up in Izmir and Istanbul went to cram school on the weekends in preparation for the national entrance exams tried so hard to fulfill the expectations of many middle class families of parents working for the government who unable to bestow wealth to their children insisted for them to be good students so that they could have a degree nobody could then take away from them and therefore a good future The story is almost too familiar down to Samanci s parents who work for the government so did mine her uncle who was politically active and a bit of a good for nothing youth so was one of my uncles the political climate of the 80s and 90s playing cruel tricks on the middle class and their aspirations even her obsession with Jacues Cousteau I was obsessed with him too Yet Samanci makes the story her own with her uirky childhood her numerous attempts and failures to live up to the boring expectations of her parents her struggle to be like her older sister She also has a great eye for the things that are uniuely captivating about the Turkish childhood like the ruler with shapes including the unmistakable profile of Ataturk I loved my ruler with its Ataturk bust and had forgotten all about it until I read Dare to DisappointSome of the issues Samanci raises the great divide between the conservative Muslim boys in school and the liberal girls the economic hardships of the ever poorer and smaller middle class the wild political swings allowed by a not so solid democratic system are some of the hard truths of Turkey Samanci does a good job of explaining things in a way that anyone can understand them making the memoir all the real and universal At this time Samanci s memoir might be chronicling a vanishing type of childhood and young adulthood or not hard to say but the trendline doesn t have an encouraging slope It s a good primer to those who wish to understand the complicated past and convoluted ways of Turkey at the end of the past century which may help understand what is happening todayRecommended for those who like binoculars plastic rulers stuffed potatoes and to those who hate national exams and cram school

Here is the thing Masterly drawn and beautifully written the book leaves you with a sense of incompleteness and a delusion that it should have been longer braver and fuller a much intended delusion aimed at and kept as a secret from you throughout the book victoriously by the writer and you are hanging in time and space aching to find closure only to realize it s the only thing the book hasn t offered you Just like this country Turkey itself And you think just for a second that this was an error a defect a misjudge the writer had come to in her writing process and that second ends with a painful smile on your face only to show you that this has been the idea all along I am incomplete I ve always felt incomplete and this feeling I ve been left with when the book ended this was just the thing the book tried to achieve all along and knowing its reader it didn t take much to have done Because this is the only thing this country makes you incomplete And it s our diamond and it s our curse We will be torn apart because of it and we will rise on it Well done zge Samanc the joke was on us all along You truly are an artistWhile we are on the subject Not to be painfully obvious but seeing readers commenting they were disappointed to some extent by a book titled Dare to Disappoint is like seeing republican housewives who did not vote for Clinton on account of her being a woman criticize HBO masterpiece Girls on Facebook because the show was degrading to women I m sorry but I just have to ask Does the Pope shit in the woods
