General Note
Originally published as Ausser sich in 2017 by Suhrkamp Verlag Berlin. First published in English in 2019 by The Text Publishing Company.
"A brilliant literary debut about belonging, family and love, and the enigmatic nature of identity. Beside Myself is the disturbing and exhilarating story of a family across four generations. At its heart is one woman's search for her twin brother. When Anton goes missing and the only clue is a postcard sent from Istanbul, Ali leaves her life in Berlin to find him. Without her twin, the sharer of her memories and the mirror of her own self, Ali is lost. In a city steeped in political and social changes, where you can buy gender-changing drugs on the street, Ali's search--for her missing brother, for her identity--will take her on a journey for connection and belonging"--,Provided by publisher.
Translated from the original German into English.
