Other Colours is a collection of immediate relevance and timeless value, ranging from lyrical autobiography to criticism of literature and culture, from humour to political analysis, from delicate evocations of his friendship with his daughter Ruya to provocative discussions of Eastern and Western art. It also covers Pamuk’s recent, high profile, court case.

My Father’s Suitcase, Pamuk’s 2006 Nobel Lecture, a brilliant illumination of what it means to be a writer, completes the selection from a man who is now without doubt one of international literature’s most eminent and popular figures.

Critic Reviews

The speech made by the Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk on receiving the Nobel Prize is included in this typically thoughtful and atmospheric book, along with essays on Politics and writers who have affected his work (such as Dostoyevsky and Camus). There is also a short story about a 1950s middle-class Istanbul family much like his own. Loving vignettes about his father and small daughter sit alongside stringent critiques of nationalistic intolerance in Turkey and American involvement in Afghanistan.
