Dread, yearning, identity, intrigue, the lethal chemistry between
secular doubt and Islamic fanaticism these are the elements that
Orhan Pamuk anneals in this masterful, disquieting novel. An exiled
poet named Ka returns to Turkey and travels to the forlorn city of
Kars. His ostensible purpose is to report on a wave of suicides
among religious girls forbidden to wear their head-scarves. But Ka
is also drawn by his memories of the radiant Ipek, now recently
divorced. Amid blanketing snowfall and universal suspicion, Ka
finds himself pursued by figures ranging from Ipek s ex-husband to
a charismatic terrorist. A lost gift returns with ecstatic
suddenness. A theatrical evening climaxes in a massacre. And
finding god may be the prelude to losing everything else. Touching,
slyly comic, and humming with cerebral suspense, "Snow" is of
immense relevance to our present moment.
