Question Time with Sahar Naja Mahfouz


Sahar-Naja-MahfouzQ. Which other EAFOL 2016 participant are you most excited about?

I’m really excited to meet all of the authors, but specifically Ahlam Bsharat and Suad Amiry, I won’t have the chance to meet them outside of the EAFOL 2016.

Q. Which book(s) are you reading now?

Reading It’s London, dear by Hanan Al-Sheikh, and planning to read Mama Hissa’s Mice by Saud AlSanousi.

Q. Which literary character would you invite to dinner? And why?

I would definitely invite Noelle “Know-All” from the books of Rachel Hamilton; I believe she’s as smart and hilarious as the author. 🙂

Q. There have been some interesting additions to the dictionary over the years. Which word would you remove?

Can I remove words rather than one word? I would remove: Tweet, Selfie, BRB, TYT and all its family members.

Q. Who would write/ illustrate the story of your life?

Writing the story of my life is really simple, but has some barriers. I would choose Hanan Al Sheikh to write it.

Illustrating it, well hmmm, I believe Maya Fidawi would do it perfectly.
