Banipal 71 commemorates two great Arab authors: the inimitable Iraqi poet Saadi Youssef, “the last communist, who passed away on 13 June, and the prolific Egyptian writer Ihsan Abdel Kouddous (1919–1990), whose stories and novels were adapted into dozens of films . . . “it would be no exaggeration to equate Abdel Kouddous’s daring and braveness with that of great writers from the West who challenged all forms of censorship imposed on subjects related to love and sexuality”.
