Night Hunger by Cem Özüduru
Night Hunger is a collection of short stories full of dread, anger, horror, macabre, torture and endless toxic nightmare fuel. It deals with mortality and immortality but at the same time the ethics of writing a social commentary novel, cannibalism, ghostly apparitions, the perils of going out with friends, sexting in haunted housed and Ottoman Ninjas...
So get ready to dive into the world of dark tales and scary fables, shut the drapes and listen to the rain outside while the pages silently sneak into your soul and grab you by the soul with their cold hands ... this is, The Night Hunger.
- Cem Özüduru
