'The pain of losing something precious can be forgotten over time. But our missed opportunities never leave us, and every time they come back to haunt us, we ache.' A shy young man leaves his home in rural Turkey to learn a trade and discover life in 1920s Berlin. There, amid the city's bustling streets, elegant museums, passionate politics and seedy cabarets, a chance meeting transforms his life forever. Caught between his desire for freedom and his yearning to belong, he struggles to hold on to the new life he has found.

This is an interesting book, first published in 1943 and only now being widely read in Turkey, perhaps because Sabahattin Ali eschewed traditional gender roles and fought against government censorship. The description by the "Madonna in a Fur Coat" of relationships between men and women reads like a contemporary feminist text.
