Orhan Pamuk Wins Nobel Prize For Literature

NEW YORK - OCTOBER 12: Turkish author Orhan Pamuk attends a news conference October 12, 2006 at Columbia University in New York City. Pamuk has won the Nobel literature prize for his works that often explore the east-west divide. The 54-year old author whose books include ?Snow?, ?My Name is Red?, and ?The White Castle?, was once accused by his government of "insulting Turkishness," due to references in an interview about the massacre of Armenians during World War I, which many in Turkey staunchly insist was not a genocide.
