Finding the Stranger - In every one of us is a stranger yearning to be found by Z S Uzun
In everyone of us is a stranger yearning to be found.
A child grows up in a small town on the Black Sea, which soon becomes her imaginary prison. Afraid of being suffocated by a society in which sexism and masochism are the norms, she dreams of flying to her freedom.
She dreads the life of an obedient Muslim woman, and particularly of losing her identity before she can find her freedom.

But a miracle happens, and she journeys through seventy-seven lands in her search for the stranger. Indeed, this metaphysical being eludes her until she discovers herself by looking deep into the mirror of her love for another.
Here is a work much more mysterious than simple memoir. The result is a praise poem to life itself and to the way human individuals can find their place in the huge organic composite which we call the cosmos.

A beautiful journey of the heart
This book is a definite must read and tells the story of a magical, heartfelt journey to self discovery. Written in simple, unpretentious, yet beautifully descriptive words that take the reader on an imaginative picture journey around the world and into the heart and mind of a girl looking for her place in the world - something we can all identify with. This book is filled with compassion, it truly touched me to read it! It's a quick and easy read, however it manages to be powerful and pure in its honesty. Lovely imagery!
