** PRE-ORDER NIGHTS OF PLAGUE, THE NEW NOVEL FROM ORHAN PAMUK **
Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature
‘Everyone should read Pamuk’ The New Statesman
‘You could become obsessed with this novel’ Guardian
Osman is a young engineering student when he finds a mysterious and dangerous book that promises him a new and exciting life. He abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family, falls in love and embarks on restless bus rides through a nocturnal landscape of travellers’ cafes and apocalyptic bus wrecks, all in pursuit of this elusive vision.
But will he, or the reader, ever understand the nature of this strange obsession?
Pellucid, elusive, infinitely suggestive and poignant . . . Everyone should read Pamuk.
A head-on collision between Ballard's Crash and Hesse's Siddhartha. A strange, haunting novel.
Brilliantly captures the atmosphere of the Turkish hinterland.
