Her Guilty Secret

Author: Emily Cavanagh Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: May 2021

'Let's play truth or dare, for old times' sake . . . ' I reluctantly agree, silently praying none of my three oldest friends gets the chance to ask me a truth. There is so much I've been keeping from them. Just for this weekend, for our long-awaited college reunion, I want to put all that aside and have some fun. But it wasn't my secrets I should have been worried about. It was theirs. When Ada draws truth, she can't meet my eye. 'Ivy . . . ' she begins and then stops. Before saying something that I immediately wish she could take back. But of course she can't, not now. The worst thing is no one else seems as shocked. I realize they have let me think I was to blame all these years. Perhaps I never knew my closest friends to begin with. Maybe we were never actually friends all . . .

From a prize-winning Turkish novelist, a heady, political tale of one man's search for identity and meaning in Istanbul after the loss of his memory. A blues singer, Boratin, attempts suicide by jumping off the Bosphorus Bridge, but opens his eyes in the hospital. He has lost his memory, and can't recall why he wished to end his life.

His mind falters when remembering civilizations, while life, like a labyrinth, leads him down different paths. From the confusion of his social and individual memory, he is faced with two questions. Does physical recognition provide a sense of identity? Which is more liberating for a man, or a society: knowing the past, or forgetting it? Embroidered with Borgesian micro-stories, Labyrinth flows smoothly on the surface while traversing sharp bends beneath the current.
