At once a fiendishly devious mystery a beguiling love story and a brilliant symposium on the power of art My Name Is Red is a transporting tale set amid the splendor and religious intrigue of sixteenth century Istanbul from one of the most prominent contemporary Turkish writers The Sultan has commissioned a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land to create a great book celebrating the glories of his realm Their task to illuminate the work in the European style But because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam this commission is a dangerous proposition indeed The ruling elite therefore mustnt know the full scope or nature of the project and panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears The only clue to the mysteryor crime lies in the half finished illuminations themselves Part fantasy and part philosophical puzzle My Name is Red is a kaleidoscopic journey to the intersection of art religion love sex and power Translated from the Turkish by Erda M Gknar
