For Bird's Sake Maria Sturm | Cemre Yesil

La Fabrica 2016
Hardback, 1st edition

£24.00 IN STOCK

A symbol of schism and confluence, a transcontinental city, Istanbul has always been the inspiration for great stories. But this is not a story about Istanbul; it is a story from the female vantage point about how a group of men devote their lives to raising goldfinches and greenfinches: a mysterious bond full of contradictions, love, possession and pleasure; the contradictions between the masculine and feminine; the female caress alongside the power of men; caregivers who compete for the bird that sings the best… And two women who learn how to listen and speak.

Elegant production housed in a zip cover. (each different)

Recommended book.
