About the Edition

At once a fiendishly devious mystery, a beguiling love story, and a brilliant symposium on the power of art, My Name Is Red is a transporting tale set amid the splendor and religious intrigue of sixteenth-century Istanbul, from one of the most prominent contemporary Turkish writers.

The Sultan has commissioned a cadre of the most acclaimed artists in the land to create a great book celebrating the glories of his realm. Their task: to illuminate the work in the European style. But because figurative art can be deemed an affront to Islam, this commission is a dangerous proposition indeed. The ruling elite therefore mustn’t know the full scope or nature of the project, and panic erupts when one of the chosen miniaturists disappears. The only clue to the mystery–or crime? –lies in the half-finished illuminations themselves. Part fantasy and part philosophical puzzle, My Name is Red is a kaleidoscopic journey to the intersection of art, religion, love, sex and power.

September A murdered corpse speaks from the bottom of a well, recounting to us the circumstances of its death, the life-work it has had to forfeit and its passionate hope of vengeance. That My Name Is Red is mostly about a character called Black (like the ink on this page) is the kind of irony that characterizes this whole novel, a murder mystery in the manner of Umberto Eco’s.

My Name Is Red is plainly written for a Turkish audience (and it’s written in Turkish), but these stories allow it to be intelligible to a western audience as well. The philosophy and mystery are great, but the love triangle is a shaky business. The Name of the Rose, by Italian philosopher and novelist Umberto Eco, is often mentioned as having similarities with My Name Is Red. The Everyman's edition () contains Eco's own commentary on the novel. Like My Name Is Red, it is an erudite murder mystery, set in a period remote from modern times—in this case, a medieval monastery. It.
