Zakaria Tamer, Practicing ‘The Most Difficult Form of Literary Expression’

Banipal 53, with its focus on Syrian short-story Zakaria Tamer, is perhaps the strongest edition the magazine has yet issued:

It includes more than a dozen stories by Tamer, most in deft translation by Jonathan Wright, Ibrahim Muhawi, Roger Allen, and others; an extensive Q&A session between Tamer and Dima Alchukr; several interesting critical essays on aspects of Tamer’s work; a short biography; and a section focused solely on Tamer’s stories for children, edited and translated by Clayton Clark. 1,146 more words
