This paper focuses on the representation of German urban peripheries in Turkish -German contemporary urban fiction. Through the analysis and comparison of two novels written by contemporary German novelists with Turkish origins – Der die Träume hört (2019) by Selim Özdogan and Hawaii (2020) by Cihan Acar – this contribution is aimed at investigating how the Turkish-German community deals with life in real and fictional German urban margins as spaces where new forms of citizenship and ways of urban living take shape and how the geographical -literary depictions of this urban peripheral framework are related to issues such as feelings of loss, exclusion, abandonment, desire to escape, personal redemption and racial hatred.
