Turkish novelist wins Nobel literature prize

I am pleased to see that the literary world has bestowed its highest prize, the Novel Prize for Literature, on Orhan Pamuk, the author of "Snow."

My review of "Snow" appeared in "The White Rhino Report last spring.

The following article, published this morning in the Indianapolis Star, gives a succinct view of Pamuk's background as a writer and a political activist.

If you have not already read "Snow," I reiterate my strong recommendation that this is a work that will open your eyes to the history and the present conditions in a vitally important part of the world.
