In his first appearance at the Poetry Center, Orhan Pamuk reads from The Museum of Innocence, his first novel since winning the Nobel Prize in 2006. "Pamuk gives us what all novelists give us at their best: the truth," wrote Margaret Atwood. "Not the truth of statistics, but the truth of human experience at a particular place, in a particular time. And as with all great literature, you feel at moments not that you are examining him, but that he is examining you."

A stirring exploration of the nature of romantic attachment and of the mysterious allure of collecting, The Museum of Innocence also plumbs the depths of an Istanbul half Western and half traditional—its emergent modernity, its vast cultural history.

ORHAN PAMUK
One of Turkey’s most prominent novelists, Orhan Pamuk was born in 1952 in Istanbul into a wealthy family of engineers. He graduated from Robert College and studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University and journalism at Istanbul University. He is the Robert Yik-Fong Tam Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University, where he teaches comparative literature and writing. He is the recipient of numerous literary awards including the Nobel Prize in Literature (2006) and IMPAC Dublin Literary Award (2003). Orhan Pamuk’s previous books include Snow, My Name is Red, The Black Book, and his personal memoir, Istanbul, among others.
