  2. 2. <ul><li>Orhan Pamuk started writing regularly in 1974.His first novel,  Karanlık ve Işık ( Darkness and Light ) was a co-winner of the 1979 Milliyet Press Novel Contest (Mehmet Eroğlu was the other winner). This novel was published with the title  Cevdet Bey ve Oğulları  ( Mr. Cevdet and His Sons ) in 1982, and won the Orhan Kemal Novel Prize in 1983. It tells the story of three generations of a wealthy Istanbul family living in Nişantaşı, the district of Istanbul where Pamuk grew up </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Pamuk won a number of critical prizes for his early work, including the 1984 Madarali Novel Prize for his second novel  Sessiz Ev  ( The Silent House ) and the 1991 Prix de la Découverte Européenne for the French translation of this novel. His historical novel  Beyaz Kale  ( The White Castle ), published in Turkish in 1985, won the 1990 Independent Award for Foreign Fiction and extended his reputation abroad.  The New York Times Book Review stated,  &quot;A new star has risen in the east—Orhan Pamuk.&quot;  He started experimenting with postmodern techniques in his novels, a change from the strict naturalism of his early works. </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>On 12 October 2006, the Swedish Academy announced that Orhan Pamuk had been awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize in literature, confounding pundits and oddsmakers who had made Syrian poet Ali Ahmad Said, known as Adonis, a favourite. In its citation, the Academy said: &quot;In the quest for the melancholic soul of his native city, [Pamuk] has discovered new symbols for the clash and interlacing of cultures.&quot;Orhan Pamuk held his Nobel Lecture 7 December 2006, at the Swedish Academy, Stockholm. The lecture was entitled &quot;Babamın Bavulu&quot; (My Father's Suitcase) and was given in Turkish.
