About this book
Paperback edition of Pamuk's tale of forbidden love, set in Istanbul between 1975 and today. A commercial and critical success in hardback, this is Faber's lead fiction paperback for autumn 2010, and will be supported by a major marketing and PR campaign. 'Pamuk's haunting novel of memory, desire and loss sets a ferociously high standard for the literary fiction of the new decade.' Jane Shilling, "Sunday Telegraph"
Set in Istanbul, this title tells the story of Kemal, the son of one of Istanbul's richest families, and of his obsessive love for a poor and distant relation, the beautiful Fusun, who is a shop-girl in a small boutique.
