Melanie O'Loughlin reviews Walking on the Ceiling by Aysegül Savas, which is published by Riverhead Books. A young woman wanders Paris in the company of an older writer, who shares anecdotes from her childhood in Istanbul. This is a nuanced look at the difference between cultural exchange and appropriation - and the joy of rediscovering your family, city and country.
