From the Nobel Prize-winning novelist, an inspired, thoughtful, and deeply personal book about reading and writing novels.

In this fascinating set of essays, based on the talks he delivered at Harvard University as part of the distinguished Norton Lecture series, Pamuk presents a comprehensive and provocative theory of the novel and the experience of reading. Drawing on Friedrich Schiller's famous distinction between "na ve" writers--those who write spontaneously--and "sentimental" writers--those who are reflective and aware--Pamuk reveals two unique ways of processing and composing the written word. He takes us through his own literary journey and the beloved novels of his youth to describe the singular experience of reading. Unique, nuanced, and passionate, this book will be beloved by readers and writers alike.
