Kara Kitap

Galip çocukluk aşkı arkadaşı amcasının kızı sevgilisi ve kayıp karısı Rüya'yı karlı bir kış günü İstanbul'da aramaya başlar Çocukluğundan beri yazılarını hayranlıkla okuduğu yakın akrabası gazeteci Celal'in köşe yazıları bu arayışta ona işaretler yollayacak ve eşlik edecektir Okuyucu bir yanda her bacası her sokağı her insanı başka bir esrarlı alemin işaretine dönüşen İstanbul'da Galip'in araştırmalar. One of Pamuk s first novels First a sample of some of the wonderful writing from the very first page Ruya was lying facedown on the bed lost to the sweet warm darkness beneath the billowing folds of the blue checked uilt The first sounds of a winter morning seeped in from outside the rumble of a passing car the clatter of an old bus the rattle of copper kettles that the salep maker shared with the pastry cook the whistle of the parking attendant at the dolmus stop A cold leaden light filtered through the dark blue curtains Languid with sleep Galip gazed at his wife s head Ruya s chin was nestling in the down pillow The wondrous sights playing in her mind gave her an unearthly glow that pulled him toward her even as it suffused him with fear Memory Celal had once written in a column is a garden Ruya s gardens Ruya s gardens Galip thought Don t think don t think it will make you jealous But as he gazed at his wife s forehead he still let himself think The story There s not a lot of plot Galip is a lawyer in Istanbul His wife Ruya has disappeared leaving him a brief note He hides her leaving from his family Did she go back to her first husband whom she was married to for just a few years Or could she have run off with his uncle Celal a nationally famous newspaper columnist Celal too has disappeared Very little of the book is about the actual search instead it s the mental process Galip goes through of trying to figure out where she is often using mystical clues he finds in Celal s old columns While searching for his wife her ex and the columnist Galip starts assuming the columnist s identity writing his columns wearing his clothes living in his secret apartment he has enemies from the ideas he has expressed imitating his voice when he answers his phone calls One persistent called threatens his life Instead of a lot of plot we get essays about life in Turkey and Turkish culture from numerous columns written by Celal and from conversations such as when a group of reporters sit around the table and tell stories There ae many themes in the book but I think first it is a love story Galip grew up with Ruya they are cousins and he has loved her since he was a child Another theme is identity and people trying to be themselves There s an extended story about a legendary Turkish prince who was so obsessed with trying to be himself that he would destroy books that had brought the ideas of others into his head There is some talk about Doubles where people were at once themselves and their own imitations Many people in the story want to be someone else Galip want to be Celal Celal wants to be Rumi a famous Persian poet Galip runs into an old girlfriend from school days and finds out she is still in love with him and fantasizes that she is Ruya A brothel that Galip visits specializes in women who look act and speak like American movies stars There are a lot of references to American films and movie stars from the era of Edgar G Robinson Clark Gable Ava Gardner Elizabeth Taylor In Turkey s wave of Westernization even mannikins had to look European not Turkish The columnist writes about how Western films even changed Turkish gesturesOf course all this about be yourself is related to Turkish identity Turkey being a country that deliberately tried to Westernize starting in the late 1880 s through Mustafa Kemal Atat rk in the 1920 s Among the mystical clues Galip uses another theme is about reading letters in peoples faces tied in with the ancient Hurufism sect Kind of like astrology And maps Maps of the city and mystical codes inscribed by someone s journey or by tracing an ant crawling over a map on a page And faces you discern by superimposing maps over each other such as maps of Istanbul Cairo and Damascus And what are the odds of this a novel I reviewed two weeks ago The Tango Singer by Tomas Eloy Martinez also talked about the main character looking for secret clues on a map of where a singer spontaneously performed in Buenos AiresAnd it s almost always snowing Is that a theme Perhaps Pamuk got the idea of writing his novel Snow after writing this book It s also a love story to the city of Istanbul it s beauty as well as its seedinessI really enjoyed this book and the depth of thought on a wide variety of topics Pamuk won the Nobel Prize in 2006 It s a long book The edition I read had a tiny font and hardly any margins and went for almost 500 pages other editions in English are 700 or even 800 pages long so it is an extensive read that can be a bit trying in places but generally I never felt it was getting repetitive or losing focus I give it a 5 and I m adding it to my favoritesPhotos of Istanbul top from cloudfrontnet middle from wendyperrincom bottom from gettyimagescom Photo of the author from ihurimgcom

ını ve karşılaştığı kişileri izlerken bir yandan da bu araştırmaları değişik işaretler ve tuhaf hikayelerle tamamlayan Celal'in köşe yazılarıyla karşılaşır Eski cellatların hikayelerinden Boğaz'ın sularının çekileceği felaket günlerine kılık değiştiren paşalardan kültür tarihimizden kalmış esrarlı cinayetlere karlı gecenin aşk hikayelerinden yüzlerimizin üzerindeki anlamın sırlarına İstanbul'un ücra ve. I hope that Orhan Pamuk really enjoyed writing The Black Book because I definitely did not enjoy reading it It is ostensibly the story of Celal a columnist for a major Turkish daily who has disappeared or ran away told through the eyes of the his friend and brother in law Galip When Galip s pulp detective novel loving wife Celal s sister disappears as well Galip turns into something of a detective himself and the plot thickens And then it slows to a tedious crawlWhatever the story is here it becomes something of an afterthought taking a back seat to page after page of postmodern uasi philosophical musings on the nature of identity The plot pulls its head up out of the ground from time to time introducing a few new twists and intrigues which were they part of a tighter focused novel may actually have been interesting perhaps even thrilling But as it was they just ended up getting lost in the larger symphony of postmodern tangents whose meaning or purpose in this novel I almost certainly did not fully understand Man this was a tough slog of a readWith all that being said though now that some time has elapsed since I read it last year I can look back with the sugar coated spectacles of hindsight and identify some things about it that I eventually came to appreciate such as the portraits of some of the uirky minor characters and the overall structure of the novel which is punctuated with the columns of the missing columnist columns which are eventually ghost written by Galip who takes up the pen when he realizes Celal will not return I also enjoyed some of the descriptive atmospheric passages about Istanbul where Pamuk sort of poetically depicts the various neighborhoods his protagnist travels through from the seedy and worn to the posh and comfortable There are also some pretty memorable passages from Celal s columns including a little fantasia about what lies at the bottom of the Bosporus a passage that ended up being one of the most memorable of the entire novelI read this book during a trip to Turkey yes I was one of those people which included a few days in Istanbul and something about being in the place where a novel is set does add something meaningful to the experience even if it is an excruciating one at the time
