¶ First published in Turkey, in 1998, as Benim Adim Kirmizi. In sixteenth-century Istanbul, a Sultan commissions a great book and assembles a cadre of miniaturists to illuminate it. The novel interweaves a murder mystery, a love story, and a discourse on painting. Istanbul straddles Europe and Asia, and throughout Pamuk compares and contrasts Turkey with its western and eastern neighbors, staging a conflict between Western individualism and Eastern traditionalism. In presenting the Nobel prize to Pamuk, in 2006, the prize committee paid special attention to "My Name is Read." The novel also won the 2002 Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger, 2002 Premio Grinzane Cavour, and 2003 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, cementing Pamuk's international reputation. N. B.
