Description - Other Colours by Orhan Pamuk

A collection of immediate relevance and timeless value, Other Colours ranges from lyrical autobiography to criticism of literature and culture, from humour to political analysis, from delicate evocations of his friendship with his daughter Ruya to provocative discussions of Eastern and Western art.Reflections on Pamuk's first passport, his first trip to Europe, his father's death, his recent court case, and the Istanbul earthquake share with pieces on writers as various as Laurence Sterne, Dostoyevsky, Kundera, Rushdie, and Patricia Highsmith. There are additional sections on Istanbul, New York - where Pamuk lived for two years - and on the writing of each of his novels. Interspersed among these are photographs, paintings, some of Pamuk's own black and white drawings, as well as 'Looking Out the Window', a short story originally published in Granta.
