HASH(0x9afa4528) out of 5 stars Entertaining and useful March 11 2008
By M. Catovic - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Having lived an important part of my life in Morocco just like the author and having recently entered the world of translation from Arabic to my native language for the sheer love of literature with no hopes for substantial earnings to be gained from this endevour I found the book full of useful information. Great abbreviated chapters on some prominent Arab writers with so many interesting details. Deffinitely a joy to read for whoever is attracted by this so prolific but yet so underestimated literature. I definitely believe that in this era of quick-to-read books Arab writers could make a paramount contribution for the reestablishment of high literary standards still offering interesting plots.

HASH(0x9ae105f4) out of 5 stars Fascinating Read May 18 2008
By MaryMR - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting recounting of one man's journey through life as an Arabic to English translator during a very interesting time in history. The text is peppered throughout with the names of well known Arabic authors of the 20th Century and in the course of reading I learned about authors and works that I was previously unaware of which will lead to some great reading. There are many photos, taken by the author's wife, of the author with some of the great Arabic language writers mentioned in the book.
