I am Not One of Us (2012)

Collection of intersectional short-stories that take place in a street. Noone is really from the street no matter they consider themselves a part of the street or not. Questioning the paradox of entity in which the I is not a part of we.

People have argued that I am Not One of Us is a novel rather than a collection of short stories, unlike Resentment which was interpreted by some readers as a series of short-stories; but Kaya insistently claimed that I am Not One of Us is composed of short stories whereas Resentment is a novel and a discussion of the form of the novel with its fragmented but also very much unified set up and structure.
