Other Colors: Book summary and reviews of Other Colors by Orhan Pamuk
Other Colors Summary
Over the last three decades, Pamuk has written, in addition to his seven novels, scores of piecespersonal, critical, and meditativethe finest of which he has brilliantly woven together here. He opens a window on his private life, from his boyhood dislike of school to his daughters precocious melancholy, from his successful struggle to quit smoking to his anxiety at the prospect of testifying against some clumsy muggers who fell upon him during a visit to New York City. From ordinary obligations such as applying for a passport or sharing a holiday meal with relatives, he takes extraordinary flights of imagination; in extreme moments, such as the terrifying days following a cataclysmic earthquake in Istanbul, he lays bare our most basic hopes and fears.
