Other Colours (Orhan Pamuk)
Reflections on Pamuk’s first passport, his first trip to Europe, his father’s death, his recent court case, and the Istanbul earthquake share space with pieces on writers as various as Laurence Sterne and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Vladimir Nabokov and Mario Vargas Llosa. There are sections on Istanbul, New York - where Pamuk lived for two years - and on the writing of each of his novels. Interspersed among these are some of Pamuk’s own black and white drawings, as well as his short story ‘Looking Out the Window’.
‘My Father’s Suitcase’, Pamuk’s 2006 Nobel Lecture, a brilliant illumination of what it means to be a writer, completes the selection from one of literature’s most eminent and popular figures.
