Elif Shafak is one of today’s most influential international writers and intellectuals who straddles east and west. With a suitcase of awards behind her she is the most widely read female writer in Turkey and her work has been translated into over 40 languages. Her latest novel, set in Istanbul and Oxford, is a sweeping tale of faith and friendship, tradition and modernity. As hopeful as she is politically sophisticated, Shafak shares her optimism and insight with translator and president of English PEN Maureen Freely.
