One of her top ten novels featuring works of art, as shared at the Guardian:
My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk, translated by Erdağ Göknar (1998; translated 2001)Read about another entry on the list.
A vivid, multi-voiced story of 16th-century Istanbul centring around the murder of a miniaturist who is working on a secret book for the sultan. But this is no straightforward murder mystery; Pamuk explores death, love and the nature of Islamic art with immediacy and an awareness of its cultural resonance. A book which, like the best art, can be read on many levels.
