Product Description Review “Pamuk’s nonfiction voice matches the narrating voice of his novels—grave thoughtful wry.” – San Francisco Chronicle “A full-fledged theory of the novel. . . . His explorations of time and plot words and objects and the convolutions of the reader’s mind as he seeks the center of the novel are incomparable.” – Huffington Post One of the Ten Best Books of 2010 “Anyone who has read Pamuk’s exquisite fiction will be interested in these essays on reading and the art of the novel.” – Plain Dealer “Fascinating. . . . Every novelist will want to read this and will learn from a master.” —Philip Hensher The Telegraph (UK) “A pleasure to read. . . . Quite an interesting theoretical map illuminating for instance the difference between literary and genre fiction or the relationship between art and reality.” – The National “Engaging. . . . Charming.” — The Guardian (UK) “Full of literary examples and written with a real love for the power of books The Naïve and the Sentimental Novelist will take its place with other classics like E.M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel John Gardner’s The Art of Fiction and James Wood’s How Fiction Works .” — Business-Standard “A striking interpretation of what goes on in the novelist’s mind. . . . Pamuk’s great insight is that novels don’t necessarily have a single center—the center depends on the point of view of the character and more importantly the shifting point of view of the reader.” — The American Statesman “Pamuk’s book is a reminder that without this almost metaphysical faith great fiction can’t be truly appreciated or written.” — Bookforum --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
