Kilito in English

I’m thrilled to hear that the Moroccan novelist, essayist, and critic Abdelfettah Kilito has a new book out in the United States, Thou Shalt Not Speak My Language, which is billed as a meditation on the role of language, translation, and bilingualism in Arabic literature. The book is translated into English by the talented Wail Hassan (the author of an excellent critical evaluation of Tayeb Salih’s fiction.)
