In the organizer's words:
"And now you've finally made it. You are fifty-nine and an owner. In a few years, when Ümit finishes school and you can finally leave Germany, this cold, heartless country, there will be this apartment here with your name on the doorbell." Late 1990s. An apartment in Istanbul. A death. Hüseyin has worked hard for thirty years in Germany to spend his twilight years in a condominium. Alone in the apartment, preparing everything for moving in, he dies of a heart attack. The family gathers for the funeral. There are the children Sevda, Hakan, Peri and Ümit and there is Emine, who spent her whole life at Hüseyin's side. But what is a family anyway? Just because you have the same parents, are you really connected? What do you know about each other and what don't you know? What are the unspoken things? What is kept quiet and yet is always there? Fatma Aydemir explores what we call family in her novel Djinn. Again and again, the events of the time play into the narrative, forming the undercurrent of a story that overwhelms in its intensity. And there is always the suspicion that everything is determined by dark secrets after all.
