Books like ‘My Name is Red’, ‘The Museum of Innocence’ and ‘Snow’ carved a niche in the literary world and earned Orhan Pamuk the rightful Nobel Prize for Literature. Among numerous other illustrious writers of Turkey, Pamuk became the first ever author to have sold over eleven million books in over sixty different languages and to receive the highest literary accolade. Not only has he left an ineffaceable impression on his countrymen but has also made a mark across the world, with his publications reflecting his dreamy philosophies and his rich Turkish heritage. He is currently a professor in the Humanities Department at the University of Columbia and has recently joined the postmodern literature movement. However, his successful career was not short-of its snares and hazards. He was put on trial for expressing his opinion about the Armenian Genocide, which led to a number of his works and publications being burnt and he also became a target for numerous assassination attempts. A controversial personality in his native, Turkey, he seems to have a desire to expose the degradation of the Turkish society, publicly stirring issues like ethnicity, history, race and other elements that are considered distasteful in Turkey.
