September Selection: "Distant Relations" by Orham Pamuk
Ferit Orhan Pamuk (born 7 June 1952) is a Turkish novelist, screenwriter, academic and recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature. He teaches writing and comparative literature at Columbia University.
Pamuk said in his Nobel Prize lecture:
"What literature needs most to tell and investigate today are humanity's basic fears: the fear of being left outside, and the fear of counting for nothing, and the feelings of worthlessness that come with such fears; the collective humiliations, vulnerabilities, slights, grievances, sensitivities, and imagined insults, and the nationalist boasts and inflations that are their next of kin."
Orhan Pamuk's "Distant Relations" was published in 2009.
