Orhan Pamuk spoke about his book, A Strangeness in My Mind, at Sixth & I Synagogue on Monday, November 9, 2015.
Awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature, Orhan Pamuk has written acclaimed novels including My Name Is Red and The Museum of Innocence, as well as essays, criticism, and the classic memoir, Istanbul. In his eighth work of fiction, A Strangeness in My Mind, the Turkish novelist and master storyteller tells the tale of an Istanbul street vendor and the love of his life. The book combines a story of an idealized, unattainable love with a coming-of-age, paralleling the many political and cultural changes going on in the world around the vendor. Orhan Pamuk is in conversation with Elliot Ackerman.
