What if, after the moment of death, the human mind continues to work for a few more precious minutes? For Leila each minute brings a sensual memory such as the scent of cardamon coffee shared with a handsome student in the brothel where she works. Each memory brings to mind the friends made at key moments of her life, friends who are now desperately trying to find her…

We welcome back the wonderful storyteller Elif Shafak to tell us more of her powerful new novel, 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World. Elif is a multi-award winning novelist and academic, writing in both Turkish and English, whose books have been translated into 50 languages. ‘Haunting, moving, beautifully written – and based by an extraordinary cast of characters who capture the diversity of modern Turkey. A masterpiece’ Peter Frankopan
