Young Turk

by Moris Farhi
£9.99   paperback  Telegram (2007)

Young Turk by Moris Farhi Against the backdrop of Nazism, in a multi-racial Trukey giving sancturay to many of Europe's fleeing Jews, a group of teenage friends struggles to understand events while reeling from (and relishing) the sexual and emotional discoveries of adolescence.
 
An alluring woman initiates Mustafa and his class mates in the carnal delights of rose petal jam; Musa discovers the hard facts of reaching manhood when he is expelled from the women's baths; Bilal, a 14-year old Jewish boy, sets off for Greece to rescue his mother's sister; and a circus orphan known only as 'Girl' falls head over heels for the new trapeze artist.
 
Young Turk is a wise, craftily spun and spine-tingly erotic tale of love, courage and the forging of conscience.

"His is a quicksand sort of storytelling that sucks you in, redolent with poetry and heavy on the sex"
