Büsra is living a double life. At home with her parents, life is an endless argument – about what time she comes home, about what she wears, and most of all, about how the rules apply only to her, while her brother Halil enjoys free rein.

But out in the world, everything is different. Büsra is studying Dutch literature at university, and she reads everything she can get her hands on. She works at a restaurant, where she wears tight dresses and serves alcohol. And her biggest secret of all: she has a boyfriend, and she is passionately and sinfully in love with him.

Fiery, erotic and furious, and crackling with a relentless, mischievous intellect, I Will Live is a rallying cry against patriarchal injustice – and the story of a young woman finding her voice.


I Will Live is an electrifying book, alive with the far ranging effects of following the clarion call to freedom. Gul's is a singular voice, one demanding our fullest attention
