The Museum of Innocence
Through Kemal, a tortured socialite living in ‘70s Istanbul, Pamuk presents insight into a divided society and city. One group, westernized mostly by mimicking, cuts ties with tradition; another is hunted by the impoverished, and stuck between rediscovering their identity and resentment.  An obsessive love story, Pamuk’s tale is told through lists and collections of everyday objects – objects that are now housed in an actual museum in Beyoğlu, Istanbul.
