Bronwyn Wylie-Gibb of University Book Shop in Dunedin reviews 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak. Published by Viking.

A curious tale, beautifully written, and remarkably universal given it is about a prostitute from Istanbul. Her heart stopped, Leila’s now dying brain sparks and fires, examining and polishing various scenes from her life and the people in it – tremendous.
