Snow

by Orhan Pamuk

The poet, Ka, finds himself caught up in a love affair as well as political turmoil, in a remote snow-bound city in eastern Turkey. His story personalises the present conflict caused by the tensions between Western and Islamist principles.

Extract

Ka marvelled at the snow-laden branches of the oleanders and the plane trees, and at the icicles hanging from the sides of the electricity poles feeding the pale orange light of the streetlamps, and the dying neon bulbs behind the icy shop windows
