Staff Recommendation: The White Castle

Perhaps Orhan Pamuk’s best novel, The White Castle will tangle your mind in knots as you follow the crisscrossing stories of the two main characters. His subtle look at the formation of Eastern and Western identity, coupled with a masterfully executed literary ruse, will leave you wanting to read the book straight through again, trying to figure out just when—and how—you’d been duped.
