Istanbul is a shimmering evocation, both intimate and panoramic, of one of the world’s largest cities, by its principal author.Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize in 2006, was born in Istanbul, in the family apartment building where his mother first held in her arms.His portrait of his city is therefore also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and melancholy or huzun – that all Istanbullus action: of the sadness that has just lived in the middle of the ruins of the loss of an Ottoman Empire.As he companionably guides us through the Bosporus, through Istanbul, historical monuments and lost paradises, from his dilapidated Ottoman villas, streets and waterways, he also introduced us to the city of writers, artists and assassins.Like the Dublin of Joyce and Jan Morris Venise, Pamuk Istanbul is a magnificent meeting of place and sensitivity, beautifully written and very moving.
