The Nobel Prize helped to set the fiction of Orhan Pamuk (and Turkish literature in general) in a contemporary global frame. Our conversation centers on the problem of national versus global literatures. Pamuk has faced criticism from Turkish critics who claim he is betraying, or even ridiculing, Turkish customs to the wider world. Pamuk defends the “literature of memory” and its right to tell its truth. (Listen to Part I .)
