The Gaze

December 1, 2015

Unlike all other books by Elif Şafak, The Gaze was a bit difficult for me to grasp – was it because of the magical schizophrenia or the too avant-garde style, however the topic of “seeing and being seen” remained somehow beyond me. “How much is much and how little is little” – that is a notion I sometimes struggle with.

In Bulgarian the title was translated as “Dictionary of Looks” which dragged my expectations into an utterly different direction. Anyway, a novel unlike any of her previous ones. Looking forward to her next novels.
