BOOK REVIEW : My Name Is Red By Orhan Pamuk

One of Pamuk’s most astonishing works is set in the late 16th century, during the reign of Sultan Murat III, a patron of the miniaturists whose art had come over from Persia in the course of the previous hundred years. Translated by Erdag M. Goknor, it tells a story of two murders among Murat’s court artists; one of Elegant, a master miniaturist, the other of Enishte, a cunningly complicated figure commissioned by the sultan to produce a book by his four finest artists, Elegant among them.
