Siri Hustvedt with Elif Shakaf (2017 event)

From Dickens to Vermeer and psychoanalysis to neuroscience, Siri Hustvedt is a writer of remarkable range and insight. In this event recorded live at the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival she speaks to acclaimed Turkish novelist and writer Elif Shafak about the self, bodily experience and the role of women in public intellectual life. Both writers include novels as well as non-fiction in their oeuvre, and both are fascinated by the power of fiction to identify deeper truths.

Part of a series of events programmed by our Guest Selector Elif Shafak for the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
