'I read a book one day, and my whole life was changed.' So begins The New
Life, Orhan Pamuk's fabulous road novel about a young student who yearns
for the life promised by a dangerously magical book. He falls in love,
abandons his studies, turns his back on home and family, and embarks on
restless bus trips through the provinces, in pursuit of an elusive vision.
This is a wondrous odyssey, laying bare the rage of an arid heartland. In
coffee houses with black-and-white TV sets, on buses where passengers ride
watching B-movies on flickering screens, in wrecks along the highway, in
paranoid fictions with spies as punctual as watches, the magic of Pamuk's
creation comes alive.
