    DIG and RUN I became transfixed by thoughts uestions opinions and judgments about Cem taking the train back home to Istanbul when he did at the end of Part I of this story There are three parts to this novel Each are different related connected but different The novel comes together brilliantly at the end but this is one twisted story My goodness A familiar lovelorn pursuit took me back to The Museum of Innocence Similar to The Museum of Innocence I was expecting deluded hopes for 16 year old Cem but the bigger surprise was when things took another path The Red Haired Woman much older reciprocates in an evening of sexual escapades Cem is a well digger apprentice for a MASTER Mahmut on the outskirts of Istanbul The 'master' is domineering very strict and expects Cem to obey his orders DO AS HE SAYSOften in Orhan Pamuk's books there comes a moment when it feels like 'nails on the chalkboard' for me DIGGING DIGGING DIGGINGif you've 'ever' had fantasies about being a well diggerhaha this book should end that fantasy But all digging and work without a little fun for a 16 year old boy would be a killer so Cem finds 'enjoyment' resting under his favorite walnut tree and visiting the traveling Tent of Morality Tales with lust to watch The Red Haired Woman perform However even though Cem was melting in 'sexual love heaven' from having lost his virginity an accident at work sends Cem skipping town he leaves his Master at the bottom of the well whom he presumes to be dead But is he? Dig and Run Back in Istanbul we get a modern experience of the city bookstores cafés the University which Cem becomes a geology studentand gets married Thirty years later his incomplete life comes back for a visitTWISTED twisted twisted twisted and very enjoyable45I took a 12 mark off because if I had to keep experiencing the DIGGING I thought I was going to die of thirst and or scream

    375 stars In the late 1980s I travelled to Turkey with my soon to be husband We had just finished university had little money and were in search of adventure It was certainly an interesting trip and we have often talked about going back to Turkey but I am also aware that traveling in a country when you don't know the language and have no real means of getting to know people isn't really a great way to get to know a country This was my first book by Orhan Pamuk But I feel that the two days spent reading The Red Haired Woman gave me a intimate look at Turkey in the late 1980s than my trip of almost 30 years ago The narrator of this novel recounts the summer when he was 16 years old working as an apprentice to a well digger in a small town outside of Istanbul While getting to know the master well digger the narrator also becomes fascinated by an older red haired woman Move forward thirty years and the apprentice is a wealthy businessman in a much changed Turkey but he is not freed from what happened the summer when he was 16 years old Reading The Red Haired Woman feels like a rich multi layered experience Pamuk delves into Turkey's political situation mixing in history and mythology There's also a bit of a mystery and some moral complexity This wasn't uite a 4 star read because it didn't always hold my attention but I did mostly enjoy reading it and especially I appreciated the opportunity for what felt like an intimate view of contemporary Turkey Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy

    This is a difficult one to assess as a whole It is shorter than most of Pamuk's novels and mostly written in uite simple language It is partly a story of modern Turkey and its politics partly a study of father son relationships and partly a retelling of Oedipus and the Persian legend Rostam and Sohrab The story falls into three parts each of which is uite distinctThe first part is both the simplest and the easiest to like The narrator Cem tells of a job he took after his father who was involved in a left wing group had disappeared and before his university entrance exams This involved working as an apprentice to a traditional well digger The story describes the process of well digging and Cem's relationship with his master a father figure who tells him stories Cem becomes obsessed with the red haired woman of the title and eventually discovers that she works in a travelling theatre with her husband This part comes to a dramatic conclusion view spoilerwhen he attends one of their performances spends the night with her and conseuently is the cause of an accident at the well the next day in which he believes his master to be dead hide spoiler

    Life follows mythSo it doesThe story draws upon two ancient myths Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex in which the son kills the father unknowingly and Ferdawsi’s Rustam and Sohrab taken from The Persian Book of Kings Shahnameh which is a reversal of Oedipus Rex in that it is the father who kills the son again unknowingly and the string of events that lead to both deaths and the conseuences the murderers face for their sui generis crimes The two contradictory yet complementing myths become the parameters in which the story of the eponymous Red Haired Woman and her accidental lover is setThis is by no means a retelling or adaptation of the either myth; uite the contrary Here the protagonists are very conscious of the power of the afore mentioned myth study it research it try to steer clear of it and yet see events unfold in their lives that ultimately come to a point where the myth is no longer an ancient story tucked away in books but being played right before their eyes against their will Starting from his previous novel The Strangeness in My Mind there has been a fundamental shift in Pamuk's style and the subject he deals with He abandoned the elite and middle classes and their identity problems to tell the stories of Turkey’s in particular Istanbul’s underprivileged people the have nots In addition to that he chronicled the changes being wrought in Istanbul as a result of unplanned turbo ubanisation and the fast disappearance of old arts and crafts in the age of consumerist capitalism and its compulsions The Red Haired Woman continues in the same vein It’s about the forgotten people with their now dispensable arts and now obsolete political rivalries and the fundamental geographical and social changes that were taking place in his beloved Istanbul during the transitory period of the last uarter of the 20th century and by extension in TurkeyIn his previous novel he told the story of a family of rural boza sellers but in this novel it’s about the old and dying art of manual well digging I was particularly interested in that part and found it fascinating perhaps because I could relate to some of it I am old enough to remember the dying days of well digging and functioning wells when I was growing up as a kid back in my village; a few hazy memories of the well that watered vegetables in the backyard of our country house before it had to be closed up and filled with earth when elders decided to install electrical water pumps to draw up groundwater That was in Pakistan and this story is from Turkey but it was pretty much the same in both places The wells haven't totally disappeared You can still find them in remote areas around sparsely populated hamlets where old pastoral and agrarian life continues to this dayPamuk spends a lot of pages to describe the finer details of well digging through the story of one Master Mehmut the master Well digger who takes our main protagonist Cem the narrator of two third of the story as his apprentice Things happen that cause Cem to abandon his master and run away and begin a new life in the heart of Istanbul Then we have a fast paced narrative that covers decades before the turn of events bring him back to confront his old and buried secret Cem fully aware of the guiding myths of his life tries to maneuver away from them but as fate would have it he’s unable to do soThe book is designed unevenly and I felt the middle part of the story was rushed as though the writer didn't want it to go beyond 250 printed pages or couldn't wait to get to the end of the story to reconnect with the events in the early years of Cem I also felt that Pamuk tried too hard to interpret the myths for us He kind of over explained them to the point that we already knew what's going to happen in the end That was in my opinion a weak spot and a big one All in all it's a good book but not a great one despite Pamuk's attempt to give it a solid intellectual foundation by incorporating literary mythsTRANSLATION AND ITS DISCONTENTS?I am a fan of Orhan Pamuk but I have to admit that both this one as well as his previous novel The Strangeness are uite prosaic and conventionally told The lyrical intense and rich style of his older pre Nobel novels seems to have disappeared Some reviewers have suggested it might have to do with the new translator one Ekin Oklap after Maureen Freely the erstwhile translator of his top rated books was let go But I don’t uite think this is the case You can easily recognise and love Pamuk’s style in Snow The Black Book The Museum of Innocence The White Castle and My Name is Red The first three are translated by Maureen Freely but the last two are translated by Victoria Holbrook and Erdağ Göknar respectively and Göknar’s one translation happens to be the best of all This means that what we know of Pamuk’s style and voice isn’t reliant on the translations of Maureen Freely alone If three translators between themselves could maintain his style in five books there is no reason why Ekin Oklap would not have been able to do the same Since I don’t know any Turkish to compare with the originals I have to deduce from the above that it’s not really Ekin Oklap’s fault but Pamuk’s own style has undergone a change in his recent writings I’ve argued elsewhere that he might be running out of steam which isn’t an uncommon phenomenon even with good writers You can detect a writer’s literary weariness when you read Maruez’s swansong Memories of My Melancholy Whores; and not surprisingly being as scrupulous as he was he didn’t write anything during the last 20 years of his life It might just be time for Pamuk to sit back and think hard about what he is going to write next or whether he’s going to write anything at allOctober '18

    As a fatherless son so a sonless father will be embraced by nonefrom Ferdowski's Shahnameh and the epigraph to this novel I had wanted to be a writer But after the events I am about to describe I studied engineer in geology and became a building contractor Even So readers shouldn't conclude from my telling the story now that it is over that I've put it all behind me The I remember the deeper I fall into it Perhaps you too will follow lured by the enigma of father and sonsThe Red Haired Woman is the latest novel from Orhan Pamuk one of those authors of whose books I am a completist and this while not perhaps hitting the Nobel Prize worthy heights of his greatest work Snow is another excellent addition to his works and my shelves Review updated with some comments from an excellent reading and illustrated discussion between Orhan Pamuk and Boyd Tonkin at London's Southbank in September 2017 At 250 pages it is much compact than his last novel the Dickensian A Strangeness in My Mind but eually enjoyable and worthwhile the relatively sparse story balanced by an interesting take on fatherson relationships rooted in classical epics but with also links back to Pamuk's earlier worksAnd as with A Strangeness in My Mind the translation by Ekin Oklap who has supplanted Maureen Freely translator of Museum of Innocence and Snow Again my review of the previous book the prose does appear prosaic than Pamuk's earlier works but whether this is a feature of the original or indeed truer to Pamuk's prose generally is difficult for me to say Pamuk himself it must be said commented that he is a big fan of the translation which is the ultimate endorsementThe narrator of most of the novel begins the story living in Istanbul with his mother his father a middle class pharmacist but also a leftist activist having after several periods of prolonged absence both while politically active and while detained by the authorities finally permanently left the family home and re married He is cramming for his university exams hoping to study literature and takes on a summer job in Öngören a small town 30 miles from Istanbul as an apprentice to a well diggerMaster Mahmut is one of the last practitioners of an art that had existed for thousands of years although rather dismissive of some of the elaborate rituals with divining rods and whispered prayers of some of his peers Cem comments These particular skills led some of the old well diggers to become convinced that like the shamans of Central Asia they too were in possession of supernatural powers and the gift of extrasensory perception allowing them to commune with subterranean gods and jinn I remember as a child hearing my father laugh at such tales but those longing for cheap ways to find water wanted to believe them when well diggers crouched amongst the creepers and pecking hens in those back gardens listening to the soil old men and middle aged ladies would treat them with the reverence usually reserved for the doctor putting his ear to the sick baby's chestThe reality of digging wells as Cem soons discovers is of back breaking and dangerous work Pamuk describes this in almost painful detail and at first it appears the novel is largely telling the story of a dying craft in the same way as the boza seller in A Strangeness in My Mind Pamuk himself had been wanting to tell the story of a well digger looking for water in apparently barren land ever since he met one while writing his The Black Book over 25 years earlierBut as Master Mahmut and Cem rest in their tent each night from their exertions the old man tells the apprentice stories including that of Joseph favourite son of his father and abandoned down a well by his brothers The well digger draws the moral from the story that A father must be fair A father who isn't fair will blind his sonThe next night particularly tired after striking rock in his digging Master Mahmut asks Cem to contribute a story of his own Cem presumably prompted by the talk of fathers sons and blindness tells the well digger the story of Oedipus which leads Mahmut to conclude that no one can escape their fate In the town the 16 year old Cem captures sight of the eponymous red haired woman in her thirties but mysterious and alluring She turns out to be part of a small troupe of performing artists The Theatre of Morality Tales and when Cem watches her performance it concludes with a powerful scene that he later after researching the story finds is that of Rostam and Sohrab from the Persian epic poem Shahnameh In a reversal of the Greek story here the father Rostam ends up unknowingly fighting and killing his son SohrabAfter the rather drawn out pun intended process of digging the well Cem's time in the town comes to an abrupt end and the narrative rather accelerates when he first sleeps with the red haired woman and then an accident occurs at the wellHe returns to Istanbul where he contemplates both what happens but also the two tales of Oedipus and of Rostam and Sohrab In the Oedipal tale he seems particularly fascinating with how he could end up sleeping with his mother a woman at least sixteen years older than he was I tried both couldn't imagine what that was like an odd failure of imagination given that was the exact age gap to his red haired lover And the story of Rostam and Sohrab is one he needs to rediscover As the islamist Blue explains to the secular modernist Ka in Pamuk's wonderful SnowOnce upon a time millions of people knew it by heart — from Tabriz to Istanbul from Bosnia to Trabzon — and when they recalled this story they found the meaning in their lives The story spoke to them in just the same way that Oedipus’ murder of his father or Macbeth’s obsession with power and death speak to people throughout the Western world But now because we’ve fallen under the spell of the West we’ve forgotten our own storiesPamuk also himself has remarked that the Oedipus and Rostam stories illustrate different aspects of Western and Eastern culture to the extent our sympathies lie with the murderer in each case for Oedipus we are supporting individualism and for Rostam authoritarianism and the continuation of the state Cem's research takes him around the world to discover manuscripts and miniatures based on the story one of which features in My Name is RedCem marries and as the opening uote suggests inspired by his well digging experience enters into the construction business rather than pursue his literary dreams He and his wife prove unable to have their own children and instead their construction company which they name Sohrab and which grows spectacularly in the rapidly expanding Istanbul making Cem a rich and well known businessman as well as allowing the novel to touch on themes of Westernisation and individualism in the traditional Turkish society Sohrab was our son He was growing up much faster than most children outperforming his peers and winning accolades for his business acumenAlthough he never forgets the red haired woman even recognising her in the actress Silvana Mangano who plays ueen Jocasta Oedipus's mother and wife in Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1967 film Edipo ReDuring his and his wife's cultural research they also discovers Wittfogel's Oriental Despotism A Comparative Study of Total Power which links Asian hydraulic societies needing conscripted labour to provide water and irrigation to despotism a sort of at least he made the water run euivalent to Mussolini's trains and thereby they decide conditions ripe for patricide or filicide As the construction boom and expansion of the city reaches even the tiny town where Cem had helped build the well he finds himself drawn back to Öngören and inevitably sucked into a father son confrontation that will have echoes of the two ancient tales The coincidences of the stories are perhaps a little unrealistic but as one character remarks Theatre has taught me not to dismiss anything in life as mere coincidence To say in the review would spoil the pleasure of the storyThe last section of the novel is narrated by the red haired woman reflecting on the events of the novel She laments both from the historical tales and her own life that Whether it was fathers killing their sons or sons killing fathers men always emerged victorious and all that was left for me to do was weepBut as she unravels her own story we discover a different perspective on what we had seemingly read in the rest of the novel and realise that she had far agency that the rather helpless uote above might imply And she herself sees a model for her looks in drawings and paintings of the poet and artist's model Elizabeth Siddal by the artist and poet and later her husband Dante Gabriel Rossetti in the 1850s such as this one drawn shortly after their marriageThe original Turkish version of the novel for reasons made clear in the text had such a picture on the front cover perhaps my one criticism of the English version is that the publisher has chosen a far abstract coverOverall a wonderful blend of literary commentary father son relationships with the added dimension of the motherwifelover and the modernisation of Istanbul

    This was a nice read Would not recommend if you are new to Pamuk What to expect? lots of literary symbolisms freuent comparisons between Greek epic Firdowsi's story of Rostam and Sohrab life of protagonistWhat did not seem right? Pamuk starts explaining Almost as if he is scared the reader will not be able to read between the lines comparison between the protagonist's life and the epics seemed repetitive and lumpy less lyrical than usual Pamuk novelsFor

    ​I'm a huge fan of the soulful and brilliant Turkish Nobel Prize winning novelist Orhan Pamuk So when I heard he had a new release published in the US last month I got my hands on it as soon as possibleI loved The Red Haired Woman an alluring tale of a teenager who is hired as the apprentice of a master welldigger to find water on a barren plain on the outskirts of Istanbul During his time on the job he meets a beautiful red haired woman His affair with her transforms him in unimaginable ways I loved Pamuk's intimate storytelling his stunning prose filled with poetic dreamlike musings and old Persian and Greek literature which he weaves into his narrative Orhan Pamuk's books are as high uality as modern literature gets fine dining on the bookshelfThis is the fourth book of his that I have read and I'm beginning to see a recurring theme of heartbreak lost Iove and longing I wonder if Pamuk had his heart broken in his youth Some writers have said that if you want to become a novelist go out and get your heart broken Well if this the case for Pamuk it worked out for him Heartbreak or no heartbreak whenever I read a book by him I always feel like I'm reading a classic though it is not a classic as he is still aliveBelow is a snapshot of his stunning proseThe purple peaks toward the Black Sea had assumed a strange blue shade and the rare clumps of trees among the drab jaundiced plots in the plains behind the mountains seemed particularly greenit was all beautiful and a part of me knew that the reason I felt this way was that beautiful red haired woman I had just seen standing in the doorway of her house

    Follow my blog Book Nation by Jen for all reviews and recommendations I really enjoyed this short but dense book The Red Haired Woman written by Turkish Nobel Prize winning author Orhan Pamuk In the 1980s a teenage fatherless boy is an apprentice to Master Mahmut a well digger They dig for water in the hot sun and tell stories to pass the time They develop a tight relationship and grow to rely on each other as co workers and as father and son One evening the boy observes a beautiful red haired woman twice his age and daydreams about her to get through the difficult days of work She is an actress in a traveling theater production and he becomes overwhelmed with desire to see her in the play and meet her Then there is an accident and we don’t know what happens to Mahmut The boy leaves town and we are not sure who the red haired woman really is The characters connections to one another and the mysteries make this novel a fantastic page turnerThrough stories told to the boy by Master Mahmut ideas about fathers and sons are explored with references to Oedipus Rex where a son kills his father and has children with his mother and Rostam and Sohrab where the father kills his son I had to do some googling to fully understand the references but I like to learn something when I read and this story was captivating Love loss and relationships are touched upon in The Red Haired Woman giving the reader a lot to think about and so well written with a few shockers and surprises I loved how myths and real life paralleled each other and I highly recommend this book

    From BBC Radio 4 Book at BedtimeThe Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk explores the complex layers of father son relationships through the apparently simple story of a young man apprenticed to a welldigger on the outskirts of IstanbulAs the story of the well digging proceeds he brings together eastern and western myths and legends to look at what is really meant by authority and rebellion Can anyone ever escape their fate?With this vivid image of digging towards the centre of the earth at the heart of the story he brings together eastern and western myths and legends to look at what is really meant by authority and rebellion Can anyone ever escape their fate?Cem Çelik is a little gentleman the son of a leftist Istanbul pharmacist whose politics take precedence over parenthood During one of his father's lengthy and regular disappearances 16 year old Cem gives up his holiday job guarding his uncle's orchard and apprentices himself to a master well digger Mahmut They set about digging a well to provide water for a local businessman's factoryHeraclitus said that truth lies at the bottom of a well The wells of Pamuk's Turkey are something uite sinister here guilt and shame lurk in the darkness forever threatening to come spewing up into the light The novel turns on Cem's encounter with the red haired woman of the title and a subseuent act by the well that stains the rest of his lifeAs Cem accepts the warm but irascible Mahmut as a surrogate father and Mahmut slowly begins to regard Cem with a fatherly affection the storytelling begins First Cem listens intently to Mahmut's tales then is himself invited to speak Myth and folklore pervade the novel and throw the events of Cem's life into sharp focus against the backdrop of the ever expanding 21st century IstanbulWritten by Orhan PamukTranslated by Ekin OklapRead by Paul HiltonAbridged by Jill Waters and Isobel CreedProducer Jill WatersA Waters Company production for BBC Radio 4httpwwwbbccoukprogrammesb09ntss74 Snow3 Mon nom est Rouge3 The Museum of Innocence2 The Red Haired WomanTR Silent HouseTR A Strangeness in My Mind

    No wonder i am a Pamuk fanThis book was uite different style wise and plot from his previous worksPamuk illustrates in his book the unsettling relationship between father and sonGrowing up fatherless Cem becomes a well digger’s apprentice who takes the role as his fatherThe book is divided into three parts; two of which narrated by Cem himself at 16 and 30s and the third by the red haird womanCem’s character development can be sensed and is felt in the first two parts; the voice is matureThe two parts are tied elegantly together by the red woman herself lending us her voice in the third partHow myths and fables shape your lives and even change their course is pretty interestingOver the course of the book Pamuk discusses fatherhood and its role and impact in a son’s lifeIstanbul as usual is a character in this book; although acuiring a minor role compared to his other works it develops and growsThe book wraps up in a major dramatic conclusion which although you can predict but leaves you in awePamuk had done a great job Highly recommended
