My name is Red by Orhan Pamuk( Book )

"When the Sultan commissions a great book to celebrate his royal self and his extensive dominion, he directs Enishte Effendi to assemble a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land. Their task: to illuminate the work in the European style. But because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam, this commission is a dangerous proposition indeed, and no one in the elite circle can know the full scope or nature of the project." "Panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears, and the Sultan demands answers within three days. The only clue to the mystery - or crime? - lies in the half-finished illuminations themselves. Has an avenging angel discovered the blasphemous work? Or is a jealous contender for the hand of Enishte's ravishing daughter, the incomparable Shekure, somehow to blame?"--Jacket

The black book by Orhan Pamuk( Book )

169 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 2,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galip is a lawyer living in Istanbul. His wife, the detective-novel-loving Rüya, has disappeared. Could she have left him for her ex-husband, Celâl, a popular newspaper columnist? But Celâl, too, seems to have vanished. As Galip investigates, he finds himself assuming the enviable Celâl's identity, wearing his clothes, answering his phone calls, even writing his columns. Galip pursues every conceivable clue, but the nature of the mystery keeps changing, and when he receives a death threat, he begins to fear the worst. With its cascade of beguiling stories about Istanbul, The Black Book is a brilliantly unconventional mystery, and a provocative meditation on identity. For Turkish literary readers it is the cherished cult novel in which Orhan Pamuk found his original voice, but it has largely been neglected by English-language readers. Now, in Maureen Freely's beautiful new translation, they, too, may encounter all its riches.--Publisher description

"Since his boyhood in a poor village in Central Anatolia, Mevlut Karataş has fantasized about what his life would become. Not getting as far in school as he'd hoped, at the age of twelve he comes to Istanbul--"the center of the world"--And is immediately enthralled by both the old city that is disappearing and the new one that is fast being built. He follows his father's trade, selling boza (a traditional mildly alcoholic Turkish drink) on the street, and hoping to become rich, like other villagers who have settled the desolate hills outside the booming metropolis. But luck never seems to be on Mevlut's side. As he watches his relations settle down and make their fortunes, he spends three years writing love letters to a girl he saw just once at a wedding, only to elope by mistake with her sister. And though he grows to cherish his wife and the family they have, he stumbles toward middle age in a series of jobs leading nowhere. His sense of missing something leads him sometimes to the politics of his friends and intermittently to the teachings of a charismatic religious guide. But every evening, without fail, Mevlut still wanders the streets of Istanbul, selling boza and wondering at the "strangeness" of his mind, the sensation that makes him feel different from everyone else, until fortune conspires once more to let him understand at last what it is he has always yearned for."--Jacket

The red-haired woman by Orhan Pamuk( Book )

18 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the outskirts of a town thirty miles from Istanbul, a master well digger and his young apprentice are hired to find water on a barren plain. As they struggle in the summer heat, excavating without luck, the two develop a filial bond neither has known before -- not the poor middle-aged bachelor nor the middle-class boy whose father disappeared after being arrested for politically subversive activities. The pair come to depend on each other and exchange stories reflecting disparate views of the world. But in the nearby town, where they buy provisions and take their evening break, the boy finds an irresistible diversion: The Red-Haired Woman, an alluring member of a travelling theatre company. She catches his eye and seems as fascinated by him as he is by her. When the young man's wildest dream is realised, in his distraction a horrible accident befalls the well digger and the boy flees, returning to Istanbul. Only years later will he discover whether he was in fact responsible for his master's death and who the redheaded enchantress was. This is a tale of family and romance, of east and west, tradition and modernity

A strangeness in my mind : a novel by Orhan Pamuk( Recording )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mevlut, an Istanbul street vendor, has spent his whole life selling a local alcoholic drink. It is the 1990s, and although there were once thousands of boza vendors walking the frozen streets of the city, Mevlut now cuts a lonely figure on snowy winter nights. Falling deeply into debt, and desperate to marry off his incompetent son and satisfy his mistress, Mevlut turns to his old friend Ferhat, who collects payments on electric bills. The partners traverse the back streets of middle class neighbourhoods and shantytowns, venture into flats, shops and restaurants of the poor, relishing their power to punish cheaters and collect bribes. The dangers of Instanbul's underbelly eventually catch up with Mevlut, and he is attacked by a pack of dogs, hospitalized, robbed by bandits and beaten and threatened at every turn. Istanbul is exposed as a city with a rich and dynamic underground culture which seeps into its secular business centres and mainstream society. Mevlut serves as a flighty guide, occasionally attuned to the city's nuances, but with a wild imagination and insticts tainted by desperation."--
Istanbul : city of a hundred names by Alex Webb( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Straddling the Bosphorus, Istanbul is a place in which East literally meets West, the only major city in the world that actually exists on two continents. Connecting Europe and Asia, this much-fought-over trading center has had many names: Byzantium, Nova Roma, Constantinople, to name but a few. It has been the capital of two of history's most powerful empires - the Byzantine and the Ottoman - and now stands as the largest city of one of the few secular Muslim nations in the world, a state that hopes to enter the European Union. Women in Istanbul have taken to the streets to protest traditional Islamic laws regarding their rights while others, often dressed in chadors, remain faithful to the past." "In Istanbul: City of a Hundred Names, Webb's ability to distill gesture, color, and contrasting cultural tensions into a single, beguiling frame is used to full effect in presenting his vision of Istanbul: an urban cultural center rich with the incandescence of its past, a city of minarets and pigeons rising to the heavens during the dawn call to Muslim prayers, yet also a city of ATM machines and designer jeans. Turkish author Orhan Pamuk contributes a text excerpted from Istanbul, his critically acclaimed portrait of the city."--BOOK JACKET
Cevdet Bey et ses fils roman by Orhan Pamuk( Book )

69 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C'est dans le quartier occidental de Nisantasi que Cevdet Bey, un riche marchand musulman, s'installe avec son épouse pour fonder une famille. Nous sommes en 1905 et le sultan Abdülhamid II vient d'échapper à un attentat. Les élites turques contestent de plus en plus fortement le règne despotique des dirigeants ottomans, le pays se trouve alors à un tournant historique que Cevdet a pour projet de relater dans ses Mémoires. Trente ans plus tard, la Turquie n'est en effet plus la même après la réforme du régime politique, le bouleversement des moeurs, et la mise en place d'un nouvel alphabet. Les fils de Cevdet Bey en profitent pour prendre des directions différentes dans ce pays gagné par la modernité. Et c'est à la troisième génération, en 1970, qu'un besoin de retour vers les origines vient sceller cette fresque turque. Ahmet, qui est artiste-peintre, s'attaque au portrait de son grand-père, mort dans les années soixante, et ainsi à celui de toute une nation... [4ème de couverture]
