You'll live the life of Ekrem Düşeş, a fictional writer in my stories. After his book was published, Ekrem Düşeş fell into a self imposed exile because of the risque subjects the book covered. He became a cult underground figure, a mix between Rasputin and Colonel Kurtz, and spent most of this exile in the gritty streets of Taksim, where the tour will be taking place. It is a portrait of a place, encapsulating social, cultural, and political issues from the perspective of a literary figure.
