    The Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his life and the Ottoman Empire, to be illuminated by the best artists of the day - in the European manner. In Istanbul at a time of violent fundamentalism, however, this is a dangerous proposition. Even the illustrious circle of artists are not allowed to know for whom they are working. But when one of the miniaturists is murdered, their Master has to seek outside help. Did the dead painter fall victim to professional rivalry, romantic jealousy or religious ... Show more

An extraordinary book

by pwrnyc on Jul 7, 2011

Pamuk tells two stories: that of the people in Istanbul at the end of the 15th century; and of their attitudes toward art and religion; so different from that we westerners are familiar with. He writes beautifully, and deeply. The use of many voices gives both altered perceptions and styles and allows the author to remain in the background, while telling the story more fully.

Difficult read

by Kenneth Edwin V on Nov 27, 2010

I was curious as to what I could learn from this book by the Turkish author Orhan Pamuk--an cultural insight and there is some of that but the book seems for me to stand still, we learn about calligraphers and miniature artists and their work--but I must confess that I have stopped about 1/5 of the way through and hopefully I can get another start but not at this moment.

New and Creative

by jchibi on Apr 3, 2007

Each chapter of the book is a different person persepctive. This is something i 've never seen in a book. It push's the story and gives it a creative edge. If you are wondering about Turkey this book has a lot of information that's given in the stroy. The first couple of chapters are hard to get into, but after that it's hard to put down.
