10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World, Elif Shafak

For Leila, each minute after her death recalls a sensuous memory: spiced goat stew, sacrificed by her father to celebrate the birth of a yearned-for son; bubbling vats of lemon and sugar to wax women's legs while men are at prayer; the cardamom coffee she shares with a handsome student in the brothel where she works.

 When his mother dies, he refuses to show his emotions simply to satisfy the expectations of others.

Yet he is as much a victim as a criminal.
