The Museum of Innocence

Now in paperback, just in time for me to tell you that this generous novel, by the 2006 Nobel Laureate, Orhan Pamuk, remains the most captivating fiction I’ve read in the past year. An exploration of time and desire told through the enduring devotion of a businessman to the object of his youthful infatuation, it is also a poignant love letter to the author’s native Istanbul.
