Using it is like using Italo Calvino’s “Invisible Cities” as a guidebook to Venice. Fictions and objects and place are all intricately and beautifully held ­together.

Synopsis

Orhan Pamuk's Museum of Innocence in Istanbul is the culmination of decades of omnivorous collecting that seeks to capture the city of Pamuk's youth through everyday objects: the ephemera, bric-a-brac, and clutter that adheres to every life. Pamuk's novel of love lends its narrative structure to their arrangement in the museum.
