Abstract

What if birds had disappeared from the earth? In which direction could you go to find them? If the sea receded from your shore and never returned, what would you do? The narrative centers around the mysterious events in the seemingly ordinary Mossy Village along the shores of the Aegean Sea, the tensions between the characters, and their inner reckonings. When the sea withdraws far away, the main character, Azra, a young woman from the village, embarks on a journey to bring it back. On this adventure, she must face her repressed memories, and encounters the strange tale of a sailor who haunts dreams to discover the victor in a battle long ago in which he died. A unique aspect of this work was that it was written by going back and forth between two different languages.
