Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk’s love letter to his native Istanbul.

From the Nobel prize winner and bestselling author of My Name is Red and The Museum of Innocence, a soaring, panoramic new novel telling the unforgettable tale of an Istanbul street vendor and the love of his life.
Over four decades, Mevlut observes many different kinds of people thronging the streets, he watches most of the city get demolished and re-built, and he witnesses all of the transformative moments, political clashes, and military coups that shape the country.

Reviews

To read Pamuk is to be converted to the cult of the book
