Init was translated into English again by Maureen Freely. He wanders around the city looking for his clues to her whereabouts.

He suspects that his wife has taken up with her half-brother, a columnist for Milliyet named Celal, and it happens that he is also missing. The story of Galip’s search is interspersed with reprints of Celal’s columns, which are lengthy, highly literate meditations on the city and its history. Galip thinks that by living as Celal he can figure out how Celal thinks and locate both him and his wife, so he takes up residence in Celal’s apartment, wearing his pqmuk and eventually writing his column.

Galip starts getting mysterious phone calls from one of Celal’s obsessed fans, who displays an astonishing familiarity with the columnist’s writings. It turns out that Celal and the woman had an affair, and the fan who is calling Galip is the woman’s jealous husband. In an eerie twist, it turns out that the husband has been following Galip around Istanbul in an attempt to find Celal through him, accounting for Galip’s frequent apprehension that he is being watched.

Galip finally agrees to meet both of them at pauk public location, a store called Aladdin’s that figures in much of the narrative. Soon after, Celal is shot to death in the street.

The Black Book (Pamuk novel) – Wikipedia

The identity of the killer is never discovered for certain. The novel ends with the postmodern twist of the author revealing his presence in the narrative. The story is more concerned with exploring the nature of story-telling as a means of constructing identity than with a straightforward plot.


As such, it is full of stories within the main story, relating to both Turkey’s Ottoman past and contemporary Istanbul.

The main theme of the novel is identity, and it returns on many levels. Galip for example, is clearly not happy with who he is. He dislikes his life as a lawyer, and has envied the successful Celal for years. The plot shows how he gradually changes his identity to become Celal, living in his flat, wearing his clothes and even writing his columns.

We know however, that Celal longs to become someone else as well this is clearly visible from some of his columns – see for example the one titled ‘I Must Be Myself’. She sleeps during the day, and reads detective novels in the evenings and at night, hardly ever leaving the house.

It seems that she prefers to escape from reality to the world of her detective novels, although Galip doesn’t seem to think much of these. This strange lifestyle can imply that she is also not satisfied with who she is, or how her life turned out, but perhaps she does not consciously think about it, or admit it to herself.

The questions of who we are and whether liro possible to change who we are return on at least two other levels: Istanbul ‘s identity as a city, and the identity of the Turkish people.

As Galip wanders the streets of Istanbul, we get to know many of the city’s different neighborhoods, all with their distinct ambiance. This is a city were East and West, antiquity and the modern, Islam and the secular, the rich and the poor, the pashas and the peasants are all present.

The question always lingers: Is it a modern metropolis, or a dying remnant of the once-great Constantinople? The questions of Livro national identity are referenced several times, in relation mainly to the perceived westernization of Turkish society. Should the Turkish people embrace Western European culture, or should they remain true to their heritage?


Pauk their culture and identity decaying or only transforming?

The novel in many cases implies that embracing the former will destroy not just historical and cultural heritage, but also the Turkish people themselves see part where Galip takes the tour of the underground mannequin museum. His efforts to westernize Turkey have led to mixed results. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about an Orhan Pamuk novel.
