Istanbul - Orhan Pamuk

This was an original and well-wrought autobiography, gracefully presenting the Nobel-prize winning author in a parallel with his hometown, richly illustrated by a great number of black and white photos of the city and of the Pamuk family.

I learnt a lot about the Turkish capital - admittedly, my knowledge was shamefully limited to begin with - and definitely enjoyed Pamuk's effortlessly elegant style.
