In a world which is falling apart, how do we keep hold of optimism? How do we hope, trust and believe in something better? Booker Prize nominee, novelist, academic and activist Elif Shafak reflects on our age of pessimism, in which emotions guide and misguide our politics, and misinformation and fear are increasingly dominant. In a tender, uplifting plea for optimism, Shafak draws on her own memories and delves into the power of stories to reveal how writing and reading can nurture democracy, tolerance and progress.
