"A postmodern gem. Set outside reality as often as in, the book follows an extraordinary cast of characters as they come to terms with romance, history, and everyday life. Through its bizarre twists and turns, Eray’s imaginative book illustrates our own interconnectedness in an increasingly chaotic world."—World Literature Today

"Eray is a gifted author; her prose is beautiful, with a richness that allows one to ‘[live] in different worlds’"—Publishers Weekly

"Nazlι Eray takes the reader to a fantastic journey where fact and fiction intersect to liberate the loaded and much-consumed concepts like love and passion, and to suggest that neither death nor everyday life can imprison them. In Eray’s house of fiction, lovers unite transgressing the boundaries set by time, space and conventions."—Mine Özyurt Kιlιç, Doğuş University, Istanbul
