With this work, Pamuk won the "Prix du Meilleurlivreétranger" (2002) in France, the "Grinzane Cavour" (2002) in Italy and the "International Impac-Dublin" (2003) in Ireland. In "My Name is Red", the author explores the Ottoman and Persian illuminators and the ways of seeing and painting the non-Western world through the intrigue of a love and family novel.
