From the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, an inspired, thoughtful, and
deeply personal book about reading and writing novels.
In this fascinating set of essays, based on the talks he delivered
at Harvard University as part of the distinguished Norton Lecture
series, Pamuk presents a comprehensive and provocative theory of
the novel and the experience of reading. Drawing on Friedrich
Schiller's famous distinction between "naive" writers--those who
write spontaneously--and "sentimental" writers--those who are
reflective and aware--Pamuk reveals two unique ways of processing
and composing the written word. He takes us through his own
literary journey and the beloved novels of his youth to describe
the singular experience of reading. Unique, nuanced, and
passionate, this book will be beloved by readers and writers alike.
