Una épica moderna, una historia de amor inolvidable situada en el mapa más underground, político, sucio y conflictivo de la ciudad de Estambul. Una novela destinada a convertirse en uno de los mayores logros del Premio Nobel Orhan Pamuk. Una sensación extraña, la novela más reciente de Orhan Pamuk, arranca con el anuncio de que lo que vamos a leer es, por un lado el relato de la vida, las aventuras y los sueños del vendedor callejero Mevlut Karatas, y por el otro un retrato de la ciudad de Estambul entre 1969 y 2012 visto a través de los ojos de numerosas personas. Desde que a los doce años abandonara la aldea de Anatolia donde nació, Mevlut Karatas no hace más que fantasear sobre su vida. Instalado en Estambul, desde el primer momento se siente cautivado por la ciudad vieja, sometida a constantes transformaciones, y por la nueva metrópoli que se abre paso rápidamente en su lugar. Y es allí, en «el centro del mundo», donde le veremos crecer, enamorarse y ganarse la vida como vendedor callejero de boza, una bebida tradicional turca. Pasa el tiempo y él sueña con prosperar, pero el azar parece conspirar en su contra. Y mientras todos a su alrededor logran hacer fortuna, él sigue deambulando de noche por los callejones de la ciudad, subsistiendo a base de míseros trabajillos que no conducen a nada y con esa sensación extraña que le hace sentirse diferente a los demás. Hará falta un nuevo giro del destino para que Melvut comprenda finalmente qué es lo que lleva toda la vida anhelando. La crítica ha dicho... «A falta de una palabra mejor diremos que Pamuk despliega la cualidad más rara y preciosa de un novelista: la sabiduría. [...]Pamuk muestra un talento que, con independencia de la técnica, el tono o el tema que elija, anima como una corriente eléctrica todos sus libros: su conocimiento de los pequeños deseos, envidias, irritaciones, esperanzas, deseos, arreglos, testarudeces y autoengaños que articulan la existencia cotidiana.» Gonzalo Torné, Letras Libres «Pamuk nos guía por un relato que, recorriendo varias décadas de pérdida, es, a su vez, un retrato casi antropológico de la obsesión, la clase social y las ideas sobre Oriente y Occidente.» The New York Times «Una de sus más cautivadoras novelas. Pamuk hace por Estambul lo que Joyce hizo por Dublín.» Adam Kirsch, The Washington Post «Pamuk reveló un gran talento narrativo desde el primer momento y su visión de Turquía, lejos de estereotipos, nos muestra la esencia de un país que ha forjado su identidad combinando tradición y modernidad.» El Cultural «Borges, Eco o Italo Calvino son el punto de referencia de este autor que bebe de las aguas hipnóticas y duales de una ciudad permanentemente escorada entre dos orillas, Oriente y Occidente.» ABC Cultura

'Life for De Quincey was either angels ascending on vaults of cloud or vagrants shivering on the city streets.' Thomas De Quincey - opium-eater, celebrity journalist, and professional doppelgänger � is embedded in our culture. Modelling his character on Coleridge and his sensibility on Wordsworth, De Quincey took over the poet's former cottage in Grasmere and turned it into an opium den. Here, increasingly detached from the world, he nurtured his growing hatred of his former idols and his obsession with murder as one of the fine arts. De Quincey may never have felt the equal of the giants of the Romantic Literature he so worshipped but the writing style he pioneered � scripted and sculptured emotional memoir � was to inspire generations of writers: Dickens, Dostoevsky, Virginia Woolf. James Joyce knew whole pages of his work off by heart and he was arguably the father of what we now call psychogeography. This spectacular biography, the produce of meticulous scholarship and beautifully supple prose, tells the riches-to-rags story of a figure of dazzling complexity and dazzling originality, whose rackety life was lived on the run, and both brings De Quincey and his martyred but wild soul triumphantly to life and firmly establishes Frances Wilson in the front rank of contemporary biographers.

Istanbul is a shimmering evocation, by turns intimate and panoramic, of one of the world's great cities, by its foremost writer. Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize in 2006, was born in Istanbul, 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 hzn- that all Istanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost Ottoman Empire. As he companionably guides us across the Bosphorus, through Istanbul's historical monuments and lost paradises, its dilapidated Ottoman villas, back streets and waterways, he also introduces us to the city's writers, artists and murderers. Like the Dublin of Joyce and Jan Morris' Venice, Pamuk's Istanbul is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving.

THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED TOM FORD'S NEW FILM, NOCTURNAL ANIMALS, STARRING JAKE GYLLENHAAL AND AMY ADAMS "A SUPERB AND THRILLING NOVEL...EXTRAORDINARY." -- Ian McEwan "COMPELLING...MESMERIZING...ABSOLUTELY IRRESISTIBLE."--New York Times "A PERFECT LITERARY PUZZLE, AN IRRESISTIBLE TALE ABOUT MARRIAGE AND MURDER, BOTH THRILLING AND MOVING."--Scott Turow "A PAGE-TURNER OF A LITERARY THRILLER."--Sara Waters "BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, PERFECTLY PACED, IMPRESSIVELY CLEVER, AND ULTIMATELY SHOCKING IN A WAY YOU NEVER SEE COMING."--Nelson DeMille "ABSOLUTE TERRIFYING, BEAUTIFUL, AND APPALLING. PARTS OF IT SHOCKED ME, AND I AM NOT EASILY SHOCKED."--Ruth Rendell Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer. Now, she's enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor's wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband's first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says. As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. And as we read with her, we too become lost in Sheffield's thriller. As the Hastings' ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life. TONY AND SUSAN is a dazzling, eerie, riveting novel about fear and regret, blood and revenge, marriage and creativity. It is simply one of a kind.

Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. Friday, November 22, 1963. 12.30 PM. Shots ring out. A president dies. And a nation is plunged into psychosis. Don DeLillo's extraordinary Libra is a brilliant reimagining of the events and people surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Concentrating on the lives of Lee Harvey Oswald, some rogue former spooks unhappy with Kennedy's presidency, and Nicholas Branch, a CIA archivist, trying to make sense of or draw inferences from the mass of information after the assassination, Libra presents an unapologeticly provocative picture of America in the second half of the last century. 'Even with all the swirling contradictory data, this you feel is America, and the news starts here.' Sunday Times 'Monumental, DeLillo at his chilling best. Concentrates on the inner life of the people who shaped the Kennedy assassination. He constructs the very human faces behind a monstrous event, creating fiction which trespasses on reality.' Time Out 'An audacious blend of fiction and fact.' The Times

From Orhan Pamuk, winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature, and author of My Name is Red and Istanbul, comes a collection of immediate relevance and timeless value. His original pieces have been sympathetically revisited by the author, and the result is a new work of great narrative richness and intensity. Other Colours ranges from lyrical autobiography to essays on literature and culture, from humour to political analysis, from delicate evocations of his friendship with his daughter to provocative discussions of Eastern and Western art. Reflections on Pamuk's first passport, his first trip to Europe, his father's death, his political views, his recent court case, and the Istanbul earthquake share space with a collection of pieces on writers as various as Laurence Sterne and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Vladimir Nabokov and Mario Vargas Llosa. There are sections on Istanbul, New York - where Pamuk lived for two years - and on the writing of each of his novels. Interspersed among these are some of Pamuk's own illustrated works of art, and a short story 'Looking Out the Window'. My Father's Suitcase, Pamuk's 2006 Nobel Lecture, a brilliant illumination of what it means to be a writer, completes the selection from one of literature's most eminent and popular figures.
