Mevlut, The Good Soldier Švejk

e a review no Scotsman:

"THE strangest thing about the new novel by Orhan Pamuk, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006, is how strange it isn’t. Readers who have read The White Castle, The Black Book or My Name Is Red might be expecting a postmodern puzzle-box, a book which makes the familiar unsettling and approaches complex issues askew. But his more recent works – notably The Museum Of Innocence – have shown a different side to Pamuk. That A Strangeness In My Mind is actually a rather sentimental, bitter-sweet romance should not deter readers, however, as Pamuk, being a genius, does wistful longing and lump in the throat moments with his customary brilliance."
