Turkish Novelist Denounces Government at Book Fair

Turkish Novelist Denounces Government at Book Fair: “Speaking at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Orhan Pamuk, the Turkish novelist and Nobel Prize laureate, criticized the Turkish government for its treatment of writers.”

When he was working on his latest novel, “Museum of Innocence,” Mr. Pamuk said he used YouTube to research Turkish films and songs. Now, he said that YouTube, along with many other domestic and international Web sites, are blocked in Turkey “for political reasons.”
