Product description


Hikmet’s commitment to accessibility ensures that the novel is never obscure or confusing, despite sparingly shifting between first- and third-person narration…like cutting from medium-shot to close-up or vice versa, that alters our emotional perspective on the characters. — Booklist

...a written gift of memory and experience. ...The personal reflections are humorous, the experimental delivery is exciting, and the drama is always profound. One would be hard pressed to find a similar personal reflection on the printed page that reaches such poetic heights.

— James Burt (ForeWard Reviews)
