My Name is Red

I bought Orhan Pamuk's My Name is Red, after being entranced by his novel Snow. My Name is Red is a literary historical who-dunnit novel, full with descriptions of the history of Islamic manuscript illumination. The novel won the international IMPAC award and its easy to see why its been so popular - well written with multiple voices pushing ahead both the plot of the murder mystery, a love story and a debate on the conflict between illumination and western concepts of style, originality and representation.
