From the Publisher
From one of the most important and acclaimed writers at work today,
a thrilling new novel-part murder mystery, part love story-set amid
the perils of religious repression in sixteenth-century
When the Sultan commissions a great book to celebrate his royal
self and his extensive dominion, he directs Enishte Effendi to
assemble a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land. Their
task: to illuminate the work in the European style. But because
figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam, this commission
is a dangerous proposition indeed, and no one in the elite circle
can know the full scope or nature of the project.
Panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears, and
the Sultan demands answers within three days. The only clue to the
mystery-or crime?-lies in the half-finished illuminations
themselves. Has an avenging angel discovered the blasphemous work?
Or is a jealous contender for the hand of Enishte's ravishing
daughter, the incomparable Shekure, somehow to blame?
Orhan Pamuk's My Name Is Red is at once a fantasy and a
philosophical puzzle, a kaleidoscopic journey to the intersection
of art, religion, love, sex, and power.
