Crna knjiga - Orhan Pamuk (The Black Book)


Orhan Pamuk, is the author of many celebrated books, including The White Castle, 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 most recent novel, The Museum of Innocence, was an international bestseller, praised in the Guardian as 'an enthralling, immensely enjoyable piece of storytelling.' Orhan Pamuk lives in Istanbul.

The Black Book is Orhan Pamuk's tour de force, a stunning tapestry of Middle Eastern and Islamic culture which confirmed his reputation as a writer of international stature. Richly atmospheric and Rabelaisian in scope, it is a labyrinthine novel suffused with the sights, sounds and scents of Istanbul, an unforgettable evocation of the city where East meets West, and a boldly unconventional mystery that plumbs the elusive nature of identity, fiction, interpretation and reality.

Galip is an Istanbul lawyer whose wife has vanished. Could she be hiding out with her brother? And if so, why isn't anyone in his flat? Playing the part of private investigator, Galip assumes the brother's role. But the amateur sleuth soon finds himself descending deeper and deeper into an extraordinary mystery. Richly atmospheric, 'The Black Book' is a labyrinthine novel suffused with the sights, sounds and scents of contemporary Istanbul.

Dimensions: 20 cm, paperback, 512 pages, Latin script.
