A STRANGENESS IN MY MIND
As a child, Mevlut always felt like he was missing out. When he moves to Istanbul – ‘the centre of the world’ – he is immediately enthralled. He wanders through its alleys for forty years, working as a street vendor and gaining a unique perspective of a radically changing city.
Mevlut watches his friends and relatives settle down and make their fortunes, while he stumbles toward middle age in a series of jobs leading nowhere. He never manages to shake the ‘strangeness in his mind’, until at last fortune conspires to let him understand what it is he yearns for . . .

“Pamuk does for Istanbul something like what James Joyce did for Dublin. He captures not just the look and feel of the city, but its culture, its beliefs and traditions, its people and their values.” ~ The Washington Post
“Delightful. . . . Tremendous. . . . [Written with] virtuosic craft, intellectual richness, emotional subtlety and a feeling of freedom.” ~ The New York Times Book Review
“Poignant. . . . There are no uncomplicated human beings for Pamuk, who takes as one of his principal themes here the gulf between what people say publicly and think privately.” ~ Los Angeles Times
“A textured and rewarding narrative.” ~ The Economist
“Warm and gently engrossing. . . . At its heart, this is a novel about work, love and family.” ~ The Sunday Times
