From Dickens to Vermeer and psychoanalysis to neuroscience, Siri Hustvedt is a writer of remarkable range and insight. In today’s event she talks 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.
