Since her debut on the French literary scene more than a decade ago, Belgian novelist Amélie Nothomb has published a novel a year. Her edgy fiction, unconventional thinking, and public persona have combined to transform her into a worldwide literary sensation. In the final event of the three-part series, the prolific novelist sits down with Turkish novelist, travel writer, and short story writer Buket Uzuner to discuss the phenomenon of their literary lives. Translation is available.
