What i really like about “Lost on the Highway” beside being fluent, it offers a variety content of films and music which is curated up to the story. And about visuals, portraits and fiction drawings able to open up a new window on the reader.
Also individually i can found of bit of myself in Alaz and Batu at the same time with the common senses i lived or many of us is lived even we are in lgbti community or not. To compare rare amount of gay novels in Turkey, Lost on the highway is one of the most brave novels, and realisticly reflective for gay lifestyle in İstanbul.

There are very few gay novels from middle east. This is one of them. I am amazed about this book cause it is very brave and honest. Easy to read cause most of the book written as dialogues. Besides, it has provided me such a good information about Istanbul gay scene. Last but not least amazing illustrations!
A charming and unusual gay novel2019年5月13日 - (Amazon.com)
Lost on the Highway offers some insight into the gay scene in Istanbul through a delightful protagonist who is both interesting and inexperienced. The characters and places all seem quite exotic to an American, although in the end love and sex are love and sex wherever they occur. I very much recommend this book!

It’s a bravely written, heart warming story of a young man finding/creating his sexual identity in a confusing environment. The story also sheds some light on how gay life can still flourish under unfavorable conditions and with very little societal support
