Orhan Pamuk Wins Nobel Prize in Literature

The 2006 Nobel Prizes have been announced. Turkish author Orhan Pamuk, of Istanbul, is winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature. The citation for the award refers Pamuk's "quest for the melancholic soul of his native city."

Been meaning to check out Orhan Pamuk but haven't gotten around to him yet? The writer himself has a suggestion. "The reader who buys books because the writer has received the Nobel Prize should start with My Name is Red."
