Hajar  Taddigs - Uncle Hassan's Wondrous Resurrection in an Old Mercedes


Uncle Hassan is dead. Long live Uncle Hassan!

Berlin, Kreuzberg 1984. The Özer family are getting ready for their journey back home, to Turkey. Unfortunately, the universally unpopular Uncle Hassan also makes himself comfortable in their old Mercedes – but then he passes away while they are on transit through East Germany. But since there were five of them when they entered the country, there must be five of them when they cross the border to leave. A solution is at hand, however, for they bump into Walther, whose greatest wish is to leave East Germany. So, dressed up as Uncle Hassan, Walther travels to Turkey and gets to know the whole family and a lot of Turkish customs. But in East Germany his disappearance has not gone unnoticed …

A shrewd and amusing novel about a Turkish family in Berlin in the 1980s, an old Mercedes and a man who suddenly has the whole world at his feet.
