A Woman’s World

“Women are no longer willing to shut up,” the best-selling Japanese novelist Mieko Kawakami has said, and in her latest work, All The Lovers In The Night (translated by David Boyd), she continues to examine female agency in traditionally patriarchal societies, while Best of Friends, the latest novel from prize-winning Pakistani-British writer Kamila Shamsie, tracks two friends from their childhoods in Pakistan to their complicated adulthood in London. Moderated by Lauren LeBlanc, book critic and editor.
