The Museum of Innocence

The best book I have read in a long, long time! Orhan Pamuk's novel 'The Museum of Innocence' (splendid translation by Maureen Freely) is one of his best and the genius is only getting better! Beats Marquez at times...

Sample this: "Even on our worst days, our reason does not stop speaking to us; even if unequal to the power of our passion, it continues to whisper with merciless candor that our actions will serve no purpose but to heighten our love, and therefore our pain". Never read anything as stunning before...
