MEDIA REVIEWS
"Who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind" * New York Times *
"The earliest novels are set in the Pharaonic milieu of ancient Egypt. But here already there are side-long glances at today's society." * Swedish Academy *
