Description

Orhan Pamuk’s Hugely Acclaimed Novel in a stunning New Translation.

Galip’s wife has disappeared. Could she have left him for her ex-husband, Celal, a popular newspaper columnist? But Celal, too, seems to have vanished. As Galip investigates, he finds himself assuming the enviable Celal’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. It has long been cherished by Turkish readers as the novel where Orhan Pamuk found his original voice-and now, in Maureen Freely’s beautiful new translation, readers in English may encounter all its riches.
