The newest book by Turkish author Orhan Pamuk hits bookstores on Tuesday, marking the Nobel Literature Prize-winner's 10th novel.

“Kırmızı Saçlı Kadın” (The Red-Haired Woman), published by Yapı Kredi Publishing and currently available only in its original Turkish, is set in mid-1980s İstanbul, the author's trademark setting.

It follows a well-digger named Mahmut and his apprentice as they look for water on barren land, using ancient methods to dig new wells.

“This is the tale of their back-breaking struggle, but it is also an exploration … of ideas about fathers and sons, authoritarianism and individuality, state and freedom, reading and seeing,” according to a recent announcement of the book on Pamuk's official website.
The website described the novel as “at once a realist text investigating a murder which took place 30 years ago near İstanbul, and a fictional inquiry into the literary foundations of civilizations.”

At 204 pages, “The Red-Haired Woman” is among Pamuk's shorter novels. There is currently no information as to the release date for the book's English translation. One of Turkey's bestselling authors internationally, Pamuk's novels have been translated into more than 60 languages worldwide.
