Other Colors: Essays and a Story (Vintage International)by Orhan Pamuk
Synopses & Reviews
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.
“He is the poet of the labyrinth of his own thoughts and conceits, of the fabulous and the gently ambiguous.” Colin Thubron, The New York Review
“[W]hat emerges…is a voice, part playful and part deadly, whose refracted reality a real nightingale might envy.” Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Reading these pieces one is infused with the sheer joy that exudes from each tale....An autobiography in essays and tales, a book for writers and readers that is never less than captivating.” The Baltimore Sun
From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature comes this collection of stories that are lyrical, vulnerable, [and] deeply human (The New York Times Book Review).
