The Spring 2021 issue of Banipal, their 70th, has a special focus on Palestinian author Mahmoud Shukair.
A humorous donkey detective novel for young adults, set in and around Jerusalem.
Shukair also appears today at 11 a.m. Eastern time (US) for a “Coffee & Books” session with Nur Masalha, in which they discuss Shukair’s International Prize for Arabic Fiction-shortlisted novel Praise for the Women of the Family.
“Shukair stressed the important role Arab educational institutions play in keeping Palestinian literature alive.”
Nine translations from the Arabic — at least, translated from the Arabic in some roundabout fashion — forthcoming this month.
