Ticket price

At the invitation of the Chancellor of The University of Oxford, Lord Patten of Barnes, the great Nobel-prize-winning Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk talks about his life and writing. Pamuk is flying in from Turkey to be with us, and this is a rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s greatest living writers speak in the UK. Pamuk was the second youngest person to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature when he won the award in 2006. His books have been translated into 46 languages and he is also the holder of The Peace Prize, the most prestigious award in Germany in the field of culture, along with many other international literary awards.

Pamuk’s many celebrated works include The White Castle, Istanbul and Snow. His most recent, The Museum of Innocence, was an international bestseller described as an ‘enthralling, immensely enjoyable piece of storytelling’ by the Guardian. His work often focuses on the tensions between Western and Eastern values and is also characterised by a fascination with literature and the arts.

Here he talks to Jason Cowley, editor of the New Statesman.
