And of course the irony is that this is a country in which we have an escalating number of cases of sexual violence against both women and children. Turkish courts are not taking action, the laws have not been changed. So in a country where they need to take urgent action to deal with sexual violence, instead they’re prosecuting writers. It’s the biggest tragedy. It has become like a witch-hunt” External link

Elif Shafak said : "In a way it’s great for an author to love her language but at the same time it creates difficulties in other languages that I try to learn, because in Arabic we always want to be perfect and very precise. “It’s torturing in a way if you are really in love with a language. And it’s beauty”. She told the room she struggled to learn English later in life. “I didn’t listen much in school [to English classes] then in 2005 in Edinburgh I had to write a PhD in English and it was very difficult,” Alharthi said. “I do not think I would write in another language”. Celestial Bodies, which is set in the Omani village of Al Awafi and deals with the lives and loves of three sisters, is the first novel written in Arabic to win the award. The London event was chaired by award-winning writer and human rights activist, academic and former Man Booker International Prize judge Elif Shafak. “You are the first female Arab author that has got this prize and you come from a family of strong women," External link
