Orhan Pamuk, Writer

You can skip this if you like but I love reading of Orhan Pamuk and The New York Times has a lovely article on him here .

I like what he has to say about his life, lived inside and out of his beloved Istanbul ... “As I waver back and forth,” he wrote in his memoir, “sometimes seeing the city from within and sometimes from without, I feel as I do when I am wandering the streets, caught in a stream of slippery contradictory thoughts, not quite belonging to this place and not quite a stranger.”

Thank you Erkan .
