    Abstract:
    Global Perspectives on Orhan Pamuk is an interdisciplinary collection of essays that explores Pamuk’s multifaceted approach to ordinary Turkish life. The contributors of this volume come from an array of international perspectives that place the reading of Pamuk into dynamic arenas of new interpretation and reflection. The themes of existentialism and politics are examined in illuminating essays through connections to nationalism, religion/secularity, traditional/modern, exile/home, and comparative readings of writers as Mohsin Hamid, Naguib Mahfouz, Italo Svevo, and Amitav Ghosh. This is an indispensable collection for understanding Pamuk, global literature, and crucial issues in today’s world.
