A collection of 13 short stories set in modern Turkey by acclaimed Turkish author Deniz Kavukcuoglu.

The cast of characters includes an Armenian barber who uses a pomegranate to give his neighbour a lesson in inter-community relations, a Greek woman who finds - but is not reunited with - the daughter she thought was dead and a man who inadvertently helps someone finish a report by falling out of a window.

The title story is about a career diplomat who comes to the bittersweet realisation that his whole life is one big comedy.

A topsy-turvy ride through a diversity of lives.
