From award-winning writer Elif Shafak, the Orange Prize long-listed author of The Forty Rules of Love and The Architect’s ApprenticeThe Gaze is a humorous and carnivalesque exploration of what it means to look and be looked at…

An obese woman and her lover, a dwarf, are sick of being stared at wherever they go and so decide to reverse roles. The man goes out wearing make-up and the woman draws a moustache on her face.

This elegant, unforgettable novel explores our desire to look at others.
