Turkey's greatest living novelist guides us through the monuments and lost paradises, dilapidated Ottoman villas, back streets and waterways of Istanbul - the city of his birth and the home of his imagination.

"An extraordinary and transcendentally beautiful book... It is a long time since I have read a book of such crystalline originality, or one that moved me so much."
(Katie Hickman)
"An addictive childhood memoir, a museum-in-prose of a city with West in its head but East in its soul, and a study of the alchemy between place and self."
(David Mitchell, Guardian)
