Aida Edemariam, ‘Learning to Listen’, at the Oxford Centre for Life Writing, 10 June 2019

Aida Edemariam gave this talk on The Wife’s Tale at the Oxford Centre for Life Writing on 10 June 2019. Biographer Hermione Lee described the book as ‘an astonishingly imaginative recreation of a country, a national history, a religion, a family, a marriage, and above all of a woman who endures and survives to tell her tale through the most challenging and dramatic circumstances.’
