Does anyone care about a sex worker, murdered and abandoned in Istanbul? Tequila Leila’s friends do. In her superb new novel 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World, Elif Shafak considers the meaning of family – the one we’re born into and the one we create – the restrictions society places on anyone deemed different, and what it really means to live. Elif is an award-winning British-Turkish novelist (Honour, The Bastard of Istanbul) and the most-read female author in Turkey. An advocate for women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights and freedom of speech, Elif is an inspiring public speaker.
Presented by Manchester Literature Festival in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester.
