She is a nameless “wanderer”. Those whose paths are crossed with her, remember her as a hard tempered woman. Nobody knows where she is coming from, or where she is headed for. No one knows why she is on the road. She is running away from somebody with her helpmate motorcycle. The only witnesses of the justice she seems to dispense, are the roads she is crossing over. Just then, she arrives at that strange village while looking for a place to spend the night… and to that weird house, where she thought she would spend only one night…
When the journey started? What was her expectation? Was this just an escape? Or a search?… Being able to continue with her mysterious and vital journey was far more important than these questions. The Wanderer is Sevgi Saygı’s second book published by ON8 after Peri Efsa. Sevgi Saygı, the author of mystical fictions, ably building invisible walls between dreams and reality, takes the reader to an unsettling journey with the motorcycle of a mysterious woman.
The fog got thicker and I become completely blind. I could hear the snow crushing under my feet, my heavy breath, the whistle of the wind… And the growling which made every hair on my body to stand on end… It was so close. Maybe just in a few seconds, I would feel its breath on my neck.
I stopped. I wish I could see just one step ahead. I took off my scarf and wrapped it around my hand. Not because it would work, but just to feel some comfort. Turning around and around, a hole was opening beneath my feet. How nice! I was digging my own grave.
