The Museum of Innocence - set in Istanbul between 1975 and today - tells the story of Kemal, the son of one of Istanbuls richest families, and of his obsessive love for a poor and distant relation, the beautiful Füsun, who is a shop-girl in a small boutique.

In his romantic pursuit of Füsun over the next eight years, Kemal compulsively amasses a collection of objects that chronicles his lovelorn progress - a museum that is both a map of a society and of his heart. The novel depicts a panoramic view of life in Istanbul as it chronicles this long, obsessive love affair; and Pamuk beautifully captures the identity crisis experienced by Istanbuls upper classes that find themselves caught between traditional and westernised ways of being. Orhan Pamuks first novel since winning the Nobel Prize is a stirring love story and exploration of the nature of romance. Pamuk built The Museum of Innocence in the house in which his heros fictional family lived, to display Kemals strange collection of objects associated with Füsun and their relationship. The house opened to the public in 2012 in the Beyoglu district of Istanbul. Pamuk has created a work concerning romantic love worthy to stand in the company of Lolita , Madame Bovary and Anna Karenina . - Financial Times
