Example text

Al mismo tiempo que el dolor se me clavó en la mente una imagen de mi niñez: en casa, en pantalones cortos con sus piernas delgaditas. A las dos de la madrugada fui a su casa para verlo por última vez. «Está dentro, en el dormitorio», me dijeron, y allí fui. Mucho más tarde, ya de vuelta poco antes de amanecer, la avenida Valikonaği y las calles de Nişantaşı en las que llevaba viviendo cincuenta años estaban vacías y frías y las luces de los escaparates lejanas y ajenas. Aquella mañana, sin dormir y como en un sueño, hablé con las visitas y respondí a las llamadas telefónicas, me sumergí en los trámites burocráticos, y mientras redactaba la esquela y me dejaba llevar por las notas, peticiones, deseos y pequeñas discusiones que me llegaban, creí comprender cómo en todas las muertes de repente resulta más importante el entierro que el propio difunto.

Las notas sobre Nueva York las escribí la primera vez que llegué a la ciudad, con mis primeras sensaciones de extranjero y pensando en los lectores turcos. El relato al final del libro es tan autobiográfico que el protagonista podría haberse llamado Orhan. El hermano mayor, como todos los de mis libros, no se parece en absoluto a mi hermano mayor, Şevket Pamuk, el eminente historiador de la economía, sino que es malvado y cruel. Mientras seleccionaba los textos para este libro vi, preocupado, que tenía una curiosidad y una tendencia especiales hacia los desastres naturales (los terremotos) y sociales (la política), así que dejé aparte muchos deprimentes artículos políticos.

He desechado muchos escritos, otros los he recortado y abreviado, he extraído partes de los cientos de entrevistas que he concedido y de mis cuadernos de memorias y muchas de ellas las he colocado en extraños lugares del libro con el placer de estar creando una historia. Este Otros colores se ha formado sobre el esqueleto del libro de ensayos del mismo título que publiqué en Estambul en 1999, pero aquél era como una recopilación mientras que el que el lector tiene en las manos ha tomado la forma de una serie de fragmentos, momentos y pensamientos autobiográficos.
