Free with Lea Ypi

David Runciman and Lea Ypi

David talks with Lea Ypi about her new memoir Free: Coming of Age at the End of History, which tells the story of her childhood in Stalinist Albania and what came after. It’s a tale of family secrets, political oppression and the promise of liberation – and a profound meditation on what it really means to be free.
