15:00 - 16:00
In this special Book Festival event, the Nobel Prize-winning Turkish author makes a rare Edinburgh appearance to discuss his new novel, The Red-Haired Woman. Orhan Pamuk is one of the world’s best-respected writers: his novels have introduced international audiences to a better understanding of Turkey and of Pamuk’s beloved home city, Istanbul. From the IMPAC-winning My Name is Red to his acclaimed recent novel A Strangeness in My Mind, Pamuk’s finest work investigates the complex relationship between East and West in a country that straddles both. In today’s event, Pamuk discusses life in Turkey and explains the ideas in his latest novel.
