Summary note
This volume marks an exhilarating tour through the mesmerising and labyrinthine fictional world of the Nobel Prize-winning Turkish author Orhan Pamuk. Despite being ranked alongside Marquez, Cortazar, Calvino, Borges and Eco, Pamuk is yet to receive due critical attention in the Anglophone world, where he has millions of readers. This book takes the reader on a fascinating ride through Pamuk's novels from 'The Silent House', written in the early Eighties, to the recently published 'The Red Haired Woman'. The nine novels that form the focus of this study straddle a period of more than three decades that witnessed the emergence of Pamuk as Turkey's foremost novelist and a master fabulist.
