My Name is Red

My Name is Red



Orhan Pamuk is the author of many celebrated books, including The White Castle, Istanbul and Snow. In 2003 he won the International IMPAC Award for My Name is Red, and in 2006 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. His most recent novel, The Museum of Innocence, was an international bestseller, praised in the Guardian as 'an enthralling, immensely enjoyable piece of storytelling.' Orhan Pamuk lives in Istanbul.

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. But when one of the miniaturists is 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.


'Fabulous ... It is a wonderful novel, dreamy, passionate and august, exotic in the most original and exciting way.'
Philip Hensher, Spectator

'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.'
Maureen Freely, New Statesman

'Magnificent ... This book might well be one of the few recent works of fiction that will be remembered at the end of the century.'

A scintillating fusion of murder mystery, post-modernist fable and historical romance.
