For those that are interesting, I just watched a really interesting talk on TED by Elid Shafak about fiction and how identity relates to fiction, more specifically about how, in some cases, it doesn't and that we should not expect Turkish authors to write exclusively about Turkish characters (for example). Very interesting.
