True Colors

Friday, October 05, 2007

In his first book since winning the Nobel Prize in 2006, Orhan Pamuk has proven that his reflections on life and work can be as richly imagined and vividly recounted as any of his fiction. The essays in Other Colors cover everything from getting mugged in New York to surviving an earthquake in his native Istanbul, from pondering Dostoyevsky to giving up smoking.
