From a Turkish writer who has been compared with Borges Nabokov and DeLillo comes a dazzling novel that is at once a captivating work of historical fiction and a sinuous treatise on the enigma of identity and the relations between East and West br In the th century a young Italian scholar sailing from Venice to Naples is taken prisoner and delivered to Constantinople There he falls into the custody of a scholar known as Hoja master a man who is his exact double In the years that follow the slave instructs his master in Western science and technology from medicine to pyrotechnics But Hoja wants to know more why he and his captive are the persons they are and whether given knowledge of each other s most intimate secrets they could actually exchange identities br Set in a world of magnificent scholarship and terrifying savagery b The White Castle b is a colorful and intricately patterned triumph of the imagination, It was the happiest moment of my life though I didn t know it br br So begins the new novel his first since winning the Nobel Prize from the universally acclaimed author of i Snow i and i My Name Is Red i br br It is a perfect spring in Istanbul Kemal scion of one of the city s wealthiest families is about to become engaged to Sibel daughter of another prominent family when he encounters F sun a beautiful shopgirl and a distant relation Once the long lost cousins violate the code of virginity a rift begins to open between Kemal and the world of the Westernized Istanbul bourgeosie a world as he lovingly describes it with opulent parties and clubs society gossip restaurant rituals picnics and mansions on the Bosphorus infused with the melancholy of decay until finally he breaks off his engagement to Sibel But his resolve comes too late br br For eight years Kemal will find excuses to visit another Istanbul that of the impoverished backstreets where F sun her heart now hardened lives with her parents and where Kemal discovers the consolations of middle class life at a dinner table in front of the television His obsessive love will also take him to the demimonde of Istanbul film circles where he promises to make F sun a star a scene of seedy bars run down cheap hotels and small men with big dreams doomed to bitter failure In his feckless pursuit Kemal becomes a compulsive collector of objects that chronicle his lovelorn progress and his afflicted heart s reactions anger and impatience remorse and humiliation deluded hopes of recovery and daydreams that transform Istanbul into a cityscape of signs and specters of his beloved from whom now he can extract only meaningful glances and stolen kisses in cars movie houses and shadowy corners of parks A last change to realize his dream will come to an awful end before Kemal discovers that all he finally can possess certainly and eternally is the museum he has created of his collection this map of a society s manners and mores and of one man s broken heart br br A stirring exploration of the nature of romantic attachment and of the mysterious allure of collecting i The Museum of Innocence i also plumbs the depths of an Istanbul half Western and half traditional its emergent modernity its vast cultural history This is Orhan Pamuk s greatest achievement, At once a fiendishly devious mystery a beguiling love story and a brilliant symposium on the power of art i My Name Is Red i is a transporting tale set amid the splendor and religious intrigue of sixteenth century Istanbul from one of the most prominent contemporary Turkish writers br br The Sultan has commissioned a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land to create a great book celebrating the glories of his realm Their task to illuminate the work in the European style But because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam this commission is a dangerous proposition indeed The ruling elite therefore mustn t know the full scope or nature of the project and panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears The only clue to the mystery or crime lies in the half finished illuminations themselves Part fantasy and part philosophical puzzle i My Name is Red i is a kaleidoscopic journey to the intersection of art religion love sex and power, Een puttengraver en zijn jonge leerling hebben de opdracht gekregen om water te vinden op een droge vlakte in de buurt van Istanbul Terwijl ze afzien in de zomerse hitte ontstaat er een hechte band tussen de oudere man en de jongen wiens vader verdween nadat hij gearresteerd werd voor politiek subversieve activiteiten De twee leren op elkaar te vertrouwen en vertellen verhalen om de tijd te doden Maar dan stuit de jongen op een avond in een nabijgelegen dorpje waar ze proviand kopen op een afleiding die hij niet kan weerstaan een roodharige vrouw lid van een rondreizend theatergezelschap De fascinatie lijkt wederzijds en zijn wildste dromen worden bewaarheid maar tijdens zijn afwezigheid wordt de oude puttengraver getroffen door een tragische gebeurtenis br br i De vrouw met het rode haar i is een verleidelijke roman over familie en romantiek over het Oosten en het Westen en over traditie en de moderne wereld geschreven door een van de grootste vertellers van onze tijd
