I have two books remaining in my summer reading list:
My Name is Red, by Orhan Pamuk: I heard so many good things about it and I look forward to reading it. The setting takes place in 16th century Istanbul. It is a thrilling murder mystery intertwined with cultural, religious and romantic tales. The author won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2006.
Night, by Elie Wiesel: I am inspired to read this book through the book contest announced by the people at the Buzberry blog -which is a great idea! The book recounts the author’s experience as a young Holocaust survivor. The author has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 and is a professor at my alma mater Boston University.
Happy summer reading!
