In this podcast, I have discussed Elif Shafak’s "10 Minutes 38 Seconds In This Strange World" in relation to her exploration of silences, social outcasts and memory. We can read the book in many other ways, of course. The story has lots of layers that one can look into closely. I have chosen only three of them. Elif Shafak’s "10 Minutes 38 Seconds In This Strange World" shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019. Elif Shafak is an award-winning British-Turkish novelist and the most widely read female author in Turkey. She writes in both Turkish and English, and has published seventeen books, eleven of which are novels. Her work has been translated into fifty languages. Shafak holds a PhD in political science and she has taught at various universities in Turkey, the US and the UK, including St Anne's College, Oxford University, where she is an honorary fellow.
