Throughout Istanbul, the shimmering, torn city on the Bosporus, and throughout his own family history, Ali sets out on a search for his missing brother. But above all else, he's searching for a sense of belonging beyond fatherland, mother tongue or gender. Who tells you who you are? In her debut novel, Gorki author-in-residence Sasha Marianna Salzmann tells of this question, and of the insatiable longing for life itself and its provocative boundlessness.
