Reviews

Delightful, profound, marvelously original. . . . Pamuk tells the story of the city through the eyes of memory." -The Washington Post Book World"Far from a conventional appreciation of the city's natural and architectural splendors, Istanbul tells of an invisible melancholy and the way it acts on an imaginative young man, aggrieving him but pricking his creativity." -The New York Times"Brilliant. . . . Pamuk insistently discribes a]dizzingly gorgeous, historically vibrant metropolis." -Newsday "A fascinating read for anyone who has even the slightest acquaintance with this fabled bridge between east and west." -The Economist
