He falls in love, abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family, and embarks on restless bus trips through the provinces. This is a wondrous odyssey, laying bare the rage of an arid heartland. In coffeehouses with black-and-white TV sets, on buses where passengers ride watching B-movies on flickering screens, in wrecks along the highway, in paranoid fictions with spies as punctual as watches and forsaken cultural objects instilled with poetry, the magic of Pamuk's creation comes alive.Hide synopsis

This earlier book by Pumak which has many of the exquisite ingredients of the turkish nobel prize winner's later writings ie "My Name Is Red" and "Museum of Innocence" but lacks the depth and maturity which rightfully earned him that prize. In addition the translation feels unnatural and not worthy of the poetic style which is so characteristic of Pamuk.
