Elif Shafak: There are Rivers in the Sky


British Turkish author Elif Shafak's new novel There Are Rivers in the Sky is the story of one lost poem, two great rivers, and three remarkable lives, all connected by a single drop of water. Ranging from ancient Nineveh to Victorian London, modern Turkey, and the London of today, it is a rich, sweeping novel that spans continents and cultures, entwined by rivers, rains and waterdrops. Elif will be in conversation with Claire Armitstead, Associate Editor of Culture at The Guardian.
