Originally published in Turkey in 1999.
Orhan Pamuk (born 1952) is a Turkish novelist, screenwriter, academic and recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature. He is also the first Turkish Novel Laureat. One of Turkey's most prominent novelists, his work has sold over thirteen million books in sixty-three languages, making him the country's best-selling writer.
OTHER COLORS is his first book after winning the Nobel Prize. This is a dazzling collection of essays on his life, his city, his work, and the example of other writers. By turns witty, moving, playful, and provocative, OTHER COLORS glows with the energy of a master at work and gives us the world through his eyes, assigning every radiant theme and shifting mood its precise shade in the spectrum of significance.--blurb
