  • Two Cultural Icons in One Week 5 days ago With quiet anticipation, senior dogs, along with the rest of Turkey, have been awaiting the publication of Orhan Pamuk's latest novel Kafamda Bir Tuhaflık (The Strangeness In My Head) by the YapıKredi publishing house, the same people who brought us the terrific Zeki Müren exhibit that we wrote...
