Al Aswany Interview

The Observer has an interview with novelist/dentist Alaa Al Aswany about his best-selling novel The Yacoubian Building. The piece is called “An author with bite” (har, har). Al Aswany’s new novel, Chicago, will apparently be released by the American University in Cairo Press in 2008, but as far as I can tell, it doesn’t have a U.S. publisher yet.
