A Vintage Shorts Travel Selection The Nobel Prize–winning novelist Orhan Pamuk reminisces on growing up on the banks of the mysterious Bosphorus in Istanbul. From the ghostly yalis, splendid waterside mansions built by the great Ottoman families during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, to the crowds of vessels—Russian frigates, rickety fishing boats, and ferries—that plied its waters, Pamuk takes readers on a tour of the great river. A selection from the shimmering and evocative Istanbul: Memories and the City, “Along the Bosphorus” is the essential guide to the city’s watery way. An eBook short.

As the crossroads of Turkey's European and Asian subsections, the Bosphorus strait is home to rich culture, incredible people, delicious food, unique architecture, and unmistakable style. Countless creatives have been awed and inspired here, and denizens and visitors alike are thrilled by the skyline, a breathtaking view of calming waters and magnificent bridges. But some of the best places to discover the style of the Bosphorus are within the private homes of its residents, which both pay homage to the country's glorious past and herald its future. Bosphorus Private, showcasing nineteen homes, is the first book to reveal this distinctive lifestyle; it is the melding of two continents, countless creative influences, and millennia of history.

From the Nobel Prize-winning author of My Name Is Red and Snow, a large-format, deluxe, collectible edition of his beloved memoir about life in Istanbul, with more than 200 added illustrations and a new introduction. Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul and still lives in the family apartment building where his mother first held him in her arms. His portrait of his city is thus also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and the melancholy--or h�z�n--that all Istanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire. With cinematic fluidity, Pamuk moves from the lives of his glamorous, unhappy parents to the gorgeous, decrepit mansions overlooking the Bosphorus; from the dawning of his self-consciousness to the writers and painters--both Turkish and foreign--who would shape his consciousness of his city. Like Joyce's Dublin and Borges' Buenos Aires, Pamuk's Istanbul is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving.
