Description

In Istanbul, in the late 1590s, the Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his life and his empire, to be illuminated by the best artists of the day-in the European manner. But when one of the miniaturists in murdered, their master has to seek outside help. Did the dead painter fall victim to professional rivalry, romantic jealousy or religious terror?

A thrilling murder mystery, My Name is Red is also a stunning meditation on love, artistic devotion and the tensions between East and West.

Magnificent, In this world of forgeries, where some might be in danger of losing their faith in literature, Pamuk is the real thing, and this book might well be one of the few recent works of fiction that will be remembered at the end of this century. Avkat Altinel, Observer

More than any other book I can think of, it captures not just Istanbul’s past and present contradictions, but also its terrible, timeless beauty. It’s almost perfect, in other words. All it needs is the Nobel Prize. –Maureen Freely, New Statesman

Fabulous, baffling, exciting, Utterly unlike the Western traditional historical thriller, It is a wonderful novel, dreamy, passionate and august, exotic in the most original and exciting way.
-Philip Hensher, Spectator

We in the West can only feel gratitude that such a novelist as Pamuk exists, to act as a bridge between our culture and that of a heritage quite as rich as our own.
-Tom Holland, Daily Telegraph
