Publisher's presentation :
"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."
A beautiful book that casts a touching and rather favourable eye on this community of men who raise singing birds for the pleasure to listen to them and to win singing contests...
The book has a hole-punched cover and comes in a fabric pouch or sleeve, that reminds of the boxes and cages used to keep the birds captive.
