Turkish DelightBook - 2017
"Turkish Delight opens with a screed: a sculptor in his studio, raging against the love he lost and describing, in gory detail, the state of his life since she left him. Our narrator alternates between the story of his relationship with Olga -- its passion and affection, but also its obsessiveness and abuse -- and the dark days that followed, as he attempts to recapture what they had when they lived together, "happy as beasts." The two only reunite during Olga's inexorable and tragic decline into cancer -- the chemo having taken her hair and rotted her teeth, she will only eat the soft, sweet Turkish Delight that her ex-lover brings to her bedside" --
