Pamuk Orhan

Cijena: KM
Dodaj u korpu

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.

“The speech made by the Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk on receiving the Nobel Prize is included in this typically thoughtful and atmospheric book, along with essays on Politics and writers who have affected his work (such as Dostoyevsky and Camus). There is also a short story about a 1950s middle-class Istanbul family much like his own. Loving vignettes about his father and small daughter sit alongside stringent critiques of nationalistic intolerance in Turkey and American involvement in Afghanistan.”

“'This collection of Orhan Pamuk's literary journalism, family memoirs and occasional pieces is...endearing'. ,”

O autoru

Orhan Pamuk rođen je u Istanbulu 1952. godine. Od djetinjstva do dvadeset druge godine intenzivno je slikao i vjerovao da će u budućnosti postati slikar, a s dvadeset tri odlučio je postati romanopisac i potpuno se predao pisanju. 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.
