Fashion & Fiction with Elif Shafak
Hosted by Rosie Goldsmith
At the Victoria and Albert Museum London
In this special event, the distinguished British-Turkish novelist and activist Elif Shafak launched her new novel 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World.
This was a wonderful opportunity to hear this inspired and inspirational speaker and writer talk about her views on women, clothing, culture and identity in her own life and in the characters of her many novels, from The Bastard of Istanbul and Three Daughters of Eve to her brilliant new novel. To what extent do politics, geography and religion fundamentally influence the identity, behaviour and appearance of women?
The great ‘universal storyteller’ Elif Shafak was joined by journalist Rosie Goldsmith in a discussion ranging from the Middle East to Europe, the back streets of Istanbul to the streets of post-Brexit London.
