Turkey’s Nobel laureate author Orhan Pamuk’s new novel “Kafamdi Bir Tuhaflık” (Peculiarity in my Mind) will be on the market in the first months of 2014.
The book will be published by Yapı Kredi Publications. No official English title for the book has been announced yet. Previously, Pamuk’s novel “Istanbul, Hatıralar ve Şehir” (Istanbul, Memories and the City) was published by the same company in 2003. That book has been translated into more than 40 languages.
Pamuk’s new novel is about the life of a “boza” (a Turkish-style malted corn or wheat beverage) seller who lives in Istanbul.
“When speaking about a novel like this, one remembers the words of social realists,” said Pamuk in an early interview with daily Hürriyet.
