CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In the three decades that Nobel prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk has devoted
himself to writing fiction, he has also produced scores of witty, moving, and
provocative essays and articles. He engages the work of Nabokov, Kundera,
Rushdie, and Vargas Llosa, among others, and he discusses his own books and
writing process. We also learn how he lives, as he recounts his successful
struggle to quit smoking, describes his relationship with his daughter, and
reflects on the controversy he has attracted in recent years. Here is a
thoughtful compilation of a brilliant novelist's best nonfiction, offering
different perspectives on his lifelong obsessions with loneliness, contentment,
and the books and cities that have shaped his experience.
