's review

A wife leaves her husband, and he, unable to accept that, starts with conspiracy theories including secret dervish orders, secret signs on people's faces and other tin foil hat stuff, and roams through their hometown, Istanbul, hoping to somehow run into her, and sometimes pretending to be his columnist uncle. It's hilarious -- and, as it often happens with Pamuk, there are mirrors, uncertain identities, and the clash of the East and the West, so it's complex and hilarious at the same time.
