Win signed copies of Elif Shafak's How to Stay Sane in an Age of Division and LIHA beauty sets for you and a friend

It feels like the world is falling apart. So how do we keep hold of our optimism?

How do we nurture the parts of ourselves that hope, trust and believe in something better? And how can we stay sane in this world of division? In this beautifully written and illuminating polemic, Booker Prize nominee Elif Shafak reflects on our age of pessimism, when emotions guide and misguide our politics, and misinformation and fear are the norm. A tender, uplifting plea for optimism, Shafak draws on her own memories and delves into the power of stories to reveal how writing can nurture democracy, tolerance and progress. And in the process, she answers one of the most urgent questions of our time.

We're excited to give away two signed copies of How to Stay Sane in an Age of Division, plus two LIHA sets – one for you and one for a friend! LIHA creates beauty products that are, like the owners of the company, a mixture of natural African roots and a quintessentially British attitude.

The sets include:

• 15ml Idan oil
• 15ml Shea Butter
• 9cl Queen Idia candle
• Cotton Travel Bag

10 runners-up will each receive a signed copy of the book.
