In the beautifully written and illuminating polemic, How To Stay Sane In An Age Of Division, Booker Prize nominee Elif Shafak reflects on our age of pessimism, when emotions guide and misguide our politics, and misinformation and fear are the norm. Shafak draws on her own memories and delves into the power of stories to reveal how writing can nurture democracy, tolerance and progress.

Interviewed by Matthew Stadlen.
