Mevlut has worked a number of different jobs on the streets of Istanbul, from selling yoghurt and cooked rice, to guarding a car park. He observes different kinds of people thronging the streets, and witnesses all of the transformative moments, political clashes, and military coups that shape the country. What is it that separates him from everyone else - the source of that strangeness in his mind.

Notă biografică

ORHAN PAMUKwon the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006. His novel "My Name Is Red" won the 2003 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. His work has been translated into more than sixty languages."


Mesmerizing . . . A sweeping epic . . . The fable-like story s chief protagonist is the ruminative Mevlut Karatas . . . His walkabouts and skirmishes with his family are engrossing, but what really stands out is Pamuk s treatment of Istanbul s evolution into a noisy, corrupt, and modernized city . . . This is a thoroughly immersive journey through the arteries of Pamuk s culturally rich yet politically volatile and class- and gender-divided homeland.
"Publishers Weekly" (starred review, Review of the Day, Pick of the Week)
Rich, complex, and pulsing with urban life: one of this gifted writer's best . . . As Pamuk follows his believably flawed protagonist and a teeming cast of supporting players across five decades, Turkey's turbulent politics provide a thrumming undercurrent of unease . . . Pamuk celebrates the city's vibrant traditional culture and mourns its passing in wonderfully atmospheric passages . . . [and] recalls the great Victorian novelists as he ranges confidently from near-documentary passages on real estate machinations and the privatization of electrical service to pensive meditations on the gap between people's public posturing and private beliefs.
