    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.

    Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk draws on Friedrich Schiller's famous distinction between 'naive' poets - who write spontaneously, serenely, unselfconsciously - and 'sentimental' poets: those who are reflective, emotional, questioning, and alive to the artifice of the written word. Pamuk - harking back through the beloved novels of his youth - explores the oscillation between the naive and the reflective, and the search for equilibrium, that lie at the center of the novelist's craft. He ponders the novel's visual and sensual power - its ability to conjure landscapes so vivid they can make the here-and-now fade away. In the course of this exploration, Pamuk considers the elements of character, plot, time, and setting that compose the 'sweet illusion' of the fictional world. 234p.

    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.

    It is 1975, a perfect spring in Istanbul. Kemal, scion of one of the city's wealthiest families, is about to become engaged to Sibel, daughter of another prominent family, when he encounters Fusun, a beautiful shopgirl and a distant relation.
