Black Sky, Black Sea

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
Istanbul in 1977 is a beautiful but fractured city. Poised between Europe and Asia, between secular values and Islam, between socialism and nationalism, the city simmers, seldom far from boiling point. Oak is a student whose interest in politics leads him to the May Day rallies. Here he meets Zuhal, a fierce girl with a gun. Over the coming years, as his city descends from a civilized society into terror and paranoia, Zuhal is the one who shapes Oak's ideals and his emotions - and brings him into contact with disillusionment, desolation and death. In Black Sky, Black Sea, Izzet Celasin explores for his readers the political fissures that forced him to flee Turkey, but he never loses sight of the human dimension that makes this a passionate and heartbreaking novel.
