Book Title: Istanbul: Memories and the City

Author: Orhan Pamuk

Book Description:

Throughout my childhood, I lived in many different places but there is only one city that I feel I fully belong to: Istanbul where the East meets the West. This beautiful but melancholic city made me as I am. Understanding this city means understanding the way I am now. Thus, I would like to choose a book which I believe best describes the city as I know it: Istanbul: Memories and the City, a memoir by Orhan Pamuk.
