Saud AlSanousiQ. Which other EAFOL 2016 participant are you most excited about?

There are many names, I have no doubt, and I am pleased this year to be a guest and meet with friends. It is very important for me that the festival gives me the opportunity to learn about authors from outside the Arab world, as it a rare opportunity. However, I am particularly happy that I will be participating in the Festival alongside the acclaimed Lebanese novelist Hoda Barakat

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

Radish.. by the Chinese novelist Mo Yan.

Q. Which author would you invite to dinner? And why?

Mohaammed Hassan Alwan and Hammour Ziada, because they are my friends and it has been a while I haven’t seen them!

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

Selfie.

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

I think it’s too early, but if I decide, no one could write it better than myself.
