Istanbul by Orhan Pamuk

Book Description

A shimmering evocation, by turns intimate and panoramic, of one of the world s great cities, by its foremost writer. Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul and still lives in the family apartment building where his mother first held him in her arms. His portrait of his city is thus also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and the melancholy or h u z u n that all Istanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire.With cinematic fluidity, Pamuk moves from his glamorous, unhappy parents to the gorgeous, decrepit mansions overlooking the Bosphorus; from the dawning of his self-consciousness to the writers and painters both Turkish and foreign who would shape his consciousness of his city. Like Joyce s Dublin and Borges Buenos Aires, Pamuk s Istanbul is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving."

Books By Author Orhan Pamuk

Naive and the Sentimental Novelist by Orhan Pamuk Naive and the Sentimental Novelist, Paperback (March 2016)

What happens within us when we read a novel? And how does a novel create its unique effects, so distinct from those of a painting, a film, or a poem? This book takes us into the worlds of the writer and the reader, revealing their intimate connections.

Black Book by Orhan Pamuk Black Book, Paperback (October 2015)

Deals with Middle East and Islamic culture. Rabelaisian in scope, this book offers the sights, sounds and scents of Istanbul, an unforgettable evocation of the city where East meets West, and a boldly unconventional mystery that plumbs the elusive nature of identity, fiction, interpretation and reality.

New Life by Orhan Pamuk New Life, Paperback (October 2015)

A young student who yearns for the life promised by a dangerously magical book. He falls in love, abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family, and embarks on restless bus trips through the provinces, in pursuit of an elusive vision. This is a wondrous odyssey, laying bare the rage of an arid heartland.
