From one of Turkey's most influential writers, nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature
There is an ancient Turkish tradition which promises a place in paradise to anyone who sets a small bird free. Three boys start up a bird-catching business to enable people to free them in order to secure their place in heaven, but the city-dwellers have become sceptical, and tragedy lies in wait for the boys.
“A modern fable arresting in its simplicity”
“A lovely vignette, full of emotion and heavy with regret”
