Veba Geceleri

Veba Geceleri

Orhan Pamuk'un son kitabı olan "Veba Geceleri"ni Sankt Georg Kitap Klübü ile seçtik. İlk defa bu kadar taze çıkmış bir kitap seçilmiş oldu bana da fırsat oldu klüple okumuş oldum.İlk etkilendiğim durum bu kitap hakkında Ocak 2016'da Ekşisözlük'de bir girdi var yani yazar gerçekten de Covid19'dan bağımsız beş senedir üzerinde çalışmış. Bu kadar denk gelmesi "müneccim" midir nedir diye düşündürdü.…

Suç ve Ceza

Suç ve Ceza
