Orhan Pamuk Inks Deal with ABRAMS

Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk has landed a deal with ABRAMS for The Innocence of Objects. The book is slated for worldwide release in October 2012. Andrew Wylie of the Wylie Agency negotiated the deal with editor-in-chief Eric Himmel.

This publication catalogs Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence. The actual museum will open to the public on April 27th. This institution, located in Pamuk’s hometown Istanbul, was inspired by Pamuk’s 2008 novel which shares the same name.

Here’s more from the release: “The Innocence of Objects will explore the many meanings of this remarkable project. While it offers a rich visual guide to the exhibitions, it also allows Pamuk to write about things that matter deeply to him, including the psychology of the collector, the proper role of the museum, the uses of photography in modernizing societies, and of course the customs and traditions of his beloved city. The book’s imagery is equally evocative, ranging from pop ephemera that has become ‘collectible,’ to Pamuk’s superb collection of haunting photographs and movie stills of old Istanbul, to the stunning images captured by Turkish photographer Ara Guler.”

Pamuk’s second novel, The Silent House, originally published in Turkish in 1983, will finally be available in English this year. Robert Finn translated the book.
