About this title:
A stirring exploration of the nature of romantic attachment and of the mysterious allure of collecting, The Museum of Innocence also plumbs the depths of an Istanbul half Western and half traditional?its emergent modernity, its vast cultural history. This is Orhan Pamuk?s greatest achievement.
Review: NATIONAL BESTSELLERA "New York Times" Notable Book"In so many ways, a stunningly original work . . . granular and panoramic, satirical and yet grounded in reality. This is a twisted love story, engrossing and sensual in its own right. But Pamuk being Pamuk, it is so much more than that." -- San Francisco Chronicle"Sprawling, beautiful, frantic, and, in the end, painfully honest. . . . The ever-crafty Pamuk manages to leave an artful imprint of his hero, kleptomania and all, on your psyche.""-- The Georgia Straight""Lit from within by humanity like a Rembrandt painting, this is an audacious, sweeping and timeless love story." "-- Winnipeg Free Press""In sum, The Museum of Innocence is a deeply human and humane story. Spellbindingly told, it is resounding confirmation that Orhan Pamuk is one of the great novelists of his generation. With this book, he literally puts love into our hands." "-- The Washington Post"
