    On the 50th anniversary of its original publication, this brilliant new translation of the French Nobel Laureate's collection of short stories will provide a fresh look at their accomplishment. From a variety of masterfully rendered perspectives, these stories depict people at decisive moments of revelation. Whether set in North Africa, Paris, or Brazil, the stories have a common theme: modern humanity, condemned by nature and circumstances to spiritual exile, perpetually seeking an inner kingdom in which to be reborn. This is Camus writing at the height of his powers, possessed by the very core and edge of his being.

    Istanbul is a vivid photographic record of daily life in Turkey?s cultural capital from the 1940s to the 1980s. Captured through the unerring lens of award-winning lensmaster Ara Gler, the ?Eye of Istanbul?, it reflects the melancholic aesthetic of the city as it oscillates between tradition and modernity. The striking black-and-white photographs in this book are accompanied by a hitherto unpublished foreword by Orhan Pamuk, the first Turkish recipient of the Nobel Prize.

    Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul and still lives in the family apartment building where he was born. His portrait of the city is thus also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and the melancholy that all citizens of the polis share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire. The book is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving. Illus., 206 photographs. 400p.

    Includes a New Preface. In this unconventional mystery originally published in 1990, Pamuk fashions a dazzling hall-of-mirrors meditation on identity, memory & reality, elliptically condemning a society that uses informers and secret police to enforce obedience. Galip is a lawyer living in Istanbul. His wife, the detective novel-loving Ruya, has disappeared. As Galip investigates, he finds himself assuming his wife's ex-husband's enviablenewspaper columnist identity, wearing his clothes, answering his phone calls, even writing his columns. Though he pursues every conceivable clue, the nature of the mystery keeps changing, including the arrival of a death threat.

    The culmination of decades of omnivorous collecting, Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence in Istanbul uses his novel of lost love, The Museum of Innocence, as a departure point to explore the city of his youth. In The Innocence of Objects, Pamuk’s catalog of this remarkable museum, he writes about things that matter deeply to him: the psychology of the collector, the proper role of the museum, the photography of old Istanbul (illustrated with Pamuk’s superb collection of haunting photographs and movie stills), and of course the customs and traditions of his beloved city. The book’s imagery is equally evocative, ranging from the ephemera of everyday life to the superb photographs of Turkish photographer Ara Güler. Combining compelling art and writing, The Innocence of Objects is an original work of art and literature.

    It is 1975, a perfect spring in Istanbul. Kemal and Sibel, children of two prominent families, are about to become engaged. But when Kemal encounters Fusun, a beautiful shopgirl and a distant relation, he becomes enthralled. And once they violate the code of virginity, a rift begins to open between Kemal and the world of the Westernized Istanbul bourgeoisie. In his pursuit of Fusun over the next eight years, Kemal becomes a compulsive collector of objects that chronicle his love-lorn progress - amassing a museum that is both a map of a society and of his heart. 532p.

    • Published: November 2011
    In this alluring and engrossing set of essays based on the talks the Nobel Prize-winning novelist delivered at Harvard University as part of the distinguished Norton Lecture series, Orhan Pamuk presents a comprehensive and provocative theory of the novel and the experience of reading. Drawing on Friedrich Schiller’s famous distinction between “naïve” writers – those who write spontaneously – and “sentimental” writers – those who are reflective and aware – Pamuk reveals two unique ways of processing and composing the written word. He takes readers through his own literary journey and the beloved novels of his youth to describe the singular experience of reading. Unique, nuanced, and passionate. Epilogue, Index. 200p.
