Publisher Description

Shortlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize

A moving novel on the power of friendship in our darkest times, from internationally renowned writer and speaker Elif Shafak.
In the pulsating moments after she has been murdered and left in a dumpster outside Istanbul, Tequila Leila enters a state of heightened awareness. Her heart has stopped beating but her brain is still active-for 10 minutes 38 seconds. While the Turkish sun rises and her friends sleep soundly nearby, she remembers her life-and the lives of others, outcasts like her.

Tequila Leila’s memories bring us back to her childhood in the provinces, a highly oppressive milieu with religion and traditions, shaped by a polygamous family with two mothers and an increasingly authoritarian father. Escaping to Istanbul, Leila makes her way into the sordid industry of sex trafficking, finding a home in the city’s historic Street of Brothels. This is a dark, violent world, but Leila is tough and open to beauty, light, and the essential bonds of friendship.

The forty rules of love
In the first minute following her death, Tequila Leila's consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore. Her brain cells, having run out of blood, were now completely deprived of oxygen. But they did not shut down. Not right away...'
For Leila, each minute after her death brings a sensuous memory: the taste of spiced goat stew, sacrificed by her father to celebrate the long-awaited birth of a son; the sight of bubbling vats of lemon and sugar which the women use to wax their legs while the men attend mosque; the scent of cardamom coffee that Leila shares with a handsome student in the brothel where she works. Each memory, too, recalls the friends she made at each key moment in her life - friends who are now desperately trying to find her. . .

Whenever wherever I see such beautiful tiles and patterns in shades of blue, I think of Istanbul.... You can go there by water, by land, by air... or by reading a novel. Reading is essentially travelling to lands far and near. It is a new way of understanding the lives and realities of people we have never met before. Reading is discovering worlds we didn’t even know existed... Reading is balm for the soul, good for the mind, it is the oxygen we breathe... #10minutes38seconds #readingspot #istanblue #beautyofstillmoments #tilesofinstagram #booksfordays #bookalicious #igread #beautyinblue #wordsgram #theslowdowncollective #everydayinspiration #storiesofistanbul #seeingthepretty #calmversations #bookfeature #elifshafak #elif┼čafak ­čôÜ­čôÜ­čôÜ Ne zaman b├Âyle mavili desenli seramik g├Ârsem ─░stanbul d├╝┼č├╝yor g├Ânl├╝me.
