Stories and the Pursuit of Power

All great politicians have a way with words but as David Cameron perhaps proved, smart rhetoric alone is not enough. According to Elif Shafak, politicians are at their most persuasive when they harness the power of believable stories. In today’s discussion with Richard Holloway and Andrew O’Hagan, Shafak examines the stories told by a diverse range of public figures, from Julian Assange to Donald Trump.
