Interview With Mansoura Ez Eldin

Click here for my interview with Mansoura Ez Eldin on The Rumpus.

An interesting conversation. Ez Eldin says a number of things, including:

“…Part of the problem is that the translated Arabic works are not necessarily the best of the Arabic literature. Sometimes western publishers and readers search for specific themes from Arab writers—as if our literature was just a social or a political text, and not art…”

It’s a interesting conversation.
