Orhan Pamuk is one of the world’s best loved novelists. More than 13 million copies of his books have been sold worldwide and his work has been translated into 63 languages. In 2006, Pamuk was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, becoming Turkey’s first-ever Nobel laureate.
On September 23 he comes to Intelligence Squared to discuss the themes of his new novel The Nights of the Plague, which is set on a fictional Ottoman island during an outbreak of the bubonic plague in the early 1900s. The novel examines the psychology of living through a period of deadly disease and how we process complex emotions such as love, loss, gratitude and powerlessness during extraordinary times.
