In 2008 during the annual book fair in Frankfurt, Germany, novelist Orhan Pamuk criticized how the Turkish government treats writers and artists. He was well aware that Turkey's president, Abdullah Gul, was in the audience that day: "A century of banning and burning books, of throwing writers into prison or killing them or branding them as traitors and sending them into exile, and continuously denigrating them in the press--none of this has enriched Turkish literature."
