In this episode of How I Got There, Matt welcomes Elif Shafak into the studio. An award-winning novelist, political commentator, Oxford university professor and activist, Elif has achieved much in her life. She is a prolific writer who has authored 16 books published in 48 languages and is one of the most widely read novelists in her homeland of Turkey. Matt and Elif consider her unusual upbringing: “my grandmother’s house was full of magic”, the writer’s solitude, the dangers of free speech, and her desire to give a voice to the voiceless.
