These days myself and my friends are on to reading Pamuk in a big way. Nobel Laureate, who lives in Istanbul has some enticing novels under his belt. My Name is red, Snow, The Black Book, The White Castle and Istanbul. You start reading from anywhere from his sizable oevour and you are sure to be mesmerised. The best writer in years to emerge in recent years from Turkey. Snow is a political novel, whereas all the other novels of his has an element of mystery in it. Thoroughly engrossing and enlightening.
