The Edinburgh Companion to the Arab Novel in English

The Politics of Anglo Arab and Arab American Literature and Culture

Edited by Nouri Gana

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Opening up the field of diasporic Anglo-Arab literature to critical debate, this companion spans from the first Arab novel in 1911 to the resurgence of the Anglo-Arabic novel in the last 20 years. There are chapters on authors such as Ameen Rihani, Ahdaf Soueif and Waguih Ghali, and interviews with Laila Lalami, Hisham Matar and Fadia Faqir.
