Dodaj u korpu

From a Turkish writer who has been compared with Joyce, Nabokov, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez comes a dazzling novel that is at once a captivating work of historical fiction and a sinuous treatise on the enigma of identity and the relations between East and West. In the 17th century, a young man sailing from Venice to Naples is taken prisoner by pirates and delivered to the Ottoman Empire in Constantinople. There he is forced into slavery and left in the custody of a brilliant Turkish inventor known as Hoja--"master"--a man who is his exact double.

 

In the years that follow, the slave instructs his master in Western science and technology, from medicine to pyrotechnics. But Hoja wants to know more: why he and his captive are the persons they are and whether, given knowledge of each other's most intimate secrets, they could actually exchange identities. Set in the Ottoman Empire, a world of pirates, slavery, magnificent scholarship and terrifying savagery, The White Castle is a colourful and intricately patterned triumph of the imagination.

Uz nekoliko knjiga eseja i knjigu memoara, sjećanja i eseja o Istanbulu, napisao je deset romana od kojih su najpoznatiji Crna knjiga, Zovem se Crvena, Snijeg, Muzej nevinosti, Čudne misli u mojoj glavi i Žena crvene kose. Dobitnik je brojnih nagrada i priznanja, a 2006. godine dobio je Nobelovu nagradu za književnost. Pamuk je jedan od najistaknutijih evropskih pisaca a djela su mu prevedena na više od šezdeset jezika. Dževdet i sinovi je njegov prvi roman.
