Through one man’s journeys around a vibrant city, Orhan Pamuk asks what matters more in life: what we wish for, or what fate has in store? Translated by Ekin Oklap.
Orhan Pamuk is the author of many celebrated books, including The White Castle, Black Book, Istanbul and Snow.
In 2003, he won the International IMPAC Award for My Name Is Red, and in 2006 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. His novel, The Museum of Innocence, was an international bestseller, praised in the Guardian as ‘an enthralling, immensely enjoyable piece of storytelling.’ Orhan Pamuk’s work has been translated into over 60 languages. In spring 2012, his Museum of Innocence opened in Istanbul, where he lives.
