Praise For My Name Is Red

“Pamuk is a novelist and a great one . . . [Readers will] be lofted by the paradoxical lightness and gaiety of the writing, by the wonderfully winding talk perpetually about to turn a corner, and by the stubborn humanity in the characters’ maneuvers to survive. It is a humanity whose lies and silences emerge as endearing and oddly bracing individual truths.” —Richard Eder, The New York Times Book Review

“A modern classic . . . Rich and essential.” —Los Angeles Times
