Along the Bosphorus

Author: 

Orhan Pamuk

This book gives the reader a peak into life in Istanbul in the first half of the 20th century, and specifically into the role of the Bosphorus in that life. It is an excerpt from a longer book, and suffers a bit from lack of context, but it is still a great read.
