'Elegant ... calm and generous' Mary Beard, Guardian

The must-read, pocket-sized Big Think book of 2020

One of the Guardian's 'Best Books to Inspire Compassion'

A Cosmopolitan 'Revolutionary Read'

Ours is the age of contagious anxiety. We feel overwhelmed by the events around us, by injustice, by suffering, by an endless feeling of crisis. So, how can we nurture the parts of ourselves that hope, trust and believe in something better? And how can we stay sane in this age of division?

In this powerful, uplifting plea for conscious optimism, Booker Prize-nominated novelist and activist Elif Shafak draws on her own memories and delves into the power of stories to bring us together. In the process, she reveals how listening to each other can nurture democracy, empathy and our faith in a kinder and wiser future.
