Lale Gül is only 24 years old and has already made a name for herself in the Dutch literary world. IK GA LEVEN' is in the top 10 of the Bestseller list. In this pamphlet novel Lale describes, under her alter ego Büsra, what it's like to live in a Turkish, strict religious family in Amsterdam, in which the inequality between men and women is clearly exposed. Lale has received many death threats since the publication of her book, but last Thursday a suspect was finally arrested. As a precaution, Lale is still in a safe and unknown place, so that she can find the peace she so desperately longed for. Why did Lale write this book, did she not throw herself and especially her family in front of the bus, from which political corner did she get support and will the relationship with her parents ever be okay again? Via De Kapiteinenlijn you can listen to the impressive podcast conversation between Lale and Yves. Get on board quickly via dekapiteinenlijn.nl.
