Dare to Disappoint review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB 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

A graphic memoir about growing up in Turkey by now Chicagoan artist Samanci I knew very little about Turkey so was interested Also it begs comparisons with Persepolis as we get history of Turkey and the extent to which totalitarianism has affected its people It sure affected Samanci who was influenced by her uncle not to be a cog in the machine It doesn t spare us some violence so I wouldn t say its primary audience is necessarily kids though it is a growing up story Her stern Dad wants her to be an engineer but she chooses math which she is not so good at Most of the book is about her learning to be herself and getting in trouble in school and failing at math It s not particularly about her being good at anything There s no references to any artistic talent really until the very end so that is surprising Why be an artist It s typical for people to start out doing things their parents want them to do to be successful and many people just do those jobs but it s not like it s this budding thing she always knew was in her heart This part is Dare to Disappoint the failure years After essentially failing at math it s almost as if we are ready for part II the artist part or for her to do something other than memoir with her comics artI liked the art work it s very attractively laid out and colored and I thought as a memoir it was solid straightforward likable with very few surprises stylistically or narratively Still I look forward to work from Samanci
