Turkish novelist, a leading voice in contemporary fiction, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006. Pamuk has portrayed the complex interaction between the traditional values of Islam and the European world. In his first work Pamuk drew from the tradition of the realistic novel, but from the mid-1980s he started to employ postmodernist strategies of storytelling.

Description: Books and Writers: Orhan Pamuk
Pamuk was born in Istanbul into a well-to-do, Western oriented family. Pamuk's grandfather, a civil engineer and industrialist, became wealthy by building railroads. Most of his life Pamuk has lived in his native city, once confessing that, "Istanbul's fate is my fate: I am attached to this city because it has made me who I am." The double indentity of Istanbul has also deeply affected Pamuk's writing, in which the city and its history are inseparable.
