When she grows up, Samiha will be a ghost. In the family, we are ghosts from mother to daughter. It is Uncle who wants ghostly women around him. “To be a ghost is to respect your father, your brother and your husband.” One day, Uncle dies and becomes a ghost in his turn, a real one. “Do you think it’s funny to be a ghost?” asks Samiha. She will never be a ghost.
