From “My Name Is Red” by Orhan Pamuk — Erdağ Göknar [Translator]

EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY 331 (2010)

CHAPTER I — I AM A CORPSE

“Before my birth there was infinite time, and after my death, inexhaustible time. I never thought of it before: I’d been living luminously between two eternities of darkness.” (p. 11)

CHAPTER 2 — I AM CALLED BLACK

"With growing panic, I tried desperately to remember her, only to realize that despite love, a face long not seen finally fades." (p. 14)

"I saw some bothersome beggars dressed in rags huddling together as the smell of offal coming from the chicken-sellers market wafted over them. One of them who was blind smiled as he watched the falling snow." (p.15)
