Banipal 52 – New Fiction presents a range of new works, all translated from Arabic, whose authors hail from Egypt, Yemen, Oman, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Sudan, and include excerpts from the 2015 shortlist of the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. The book reviews include novels ranging from The Book of Khalid, by Ameen Rihani, first published in 1911, to Saud Alsanousi’s The Bamboo Stalk and Youssef Rakha’s The Crocodiles. The feature on “Prison Writing”, started in Banipal 50, continues with two new and powerful testimonies, and will remain open indefinitely for more contributions.
