Book Synopsis:

Çocukluk, büyümek, şehirlerin boğuculuğu, anneler-babalar, anneanneler-dedeler, kadir kıymet bilmek, her şeyi unutmak, sürate yenik düşmek... Yalnızlıklar, öfkeler, umutlar, heyecanlar, ölümler, küçük intihar notları... Ama en çok naiflikler, yanından fark etmeden geçip gitsek de aklımızın bir yanına takılıp kalan güzellikler... Elif Key anların, olayların, sıradan gibi görünen başkalıkların fotoğraflarını çekip kalemini oynatıyor. Bize İki Çay Söyle, bir çocuk naifliği içinde eğlenceli ama bir o kadar da yakıcı anlatılar, bir iç dökme, dertleşme.
