Item description for Nieve/snow (Spanish Edition) by Orhan Pamuk...

A spellbinding tale of disparate yearnings --for love, art, power and God. Following years of lonely political exile in Germany, Ka, a middle-aged poet, returns to Istanbul to attend his mother's funeral. Strange news of a wave of suicides lead him to Kars, a remote Turkish town where political Islamism threaten to unravel the secular order. Pamuk creates a stark picture of a too-little known part of the world, illuminating the contradictions gripping the individual and collective heart in many parts of the Muslim world. Description in Spanish: En pleno invierno, un poeta y periodista regresa a su ciudad natal, la remota ciudad de Kars en la frontera de Turqua, despus de largos aos de exilio poltico en Europa Occidental. La ciudad que encuentra es un lugar conflictivo: hay una ola de suicidios de chicas a las que se les ha prohibido llevar las cabezas cubiertas a la escuela, los islamistas van a ganar las elecciones locales, y el jefe de los servicios de inteligencia es de una eficiencia brutal. La nueva novela del premiado y prestigioso autor de Me llamo Rojo es un thriller poltico que retrata las ms diversas formas de la ambicin -el amor, el arte, el poder, la religin- y desenmascara las contradicciones que aprisionan el corazn humano en muchos lugares del mundo islmico.
