Ahmad al Malik is a prolific novelist and storyteller who combines folklore and myths with a keen sense of humour and a desire to communicate. A teacher and journalist, born in 1967, he is from Argo island on the river Nile, and now lives in The Netherlands. Autumn Comes with Safaa (2003), unravels, through his critical and poetic observations, the recent decades of Sudan’s civil war. It is his fourth novel, and now published also in Dutch and French translation. He lives in Amsterdam.

Tarek Eltayeb has published novels, collections of short stories, poetry, and plays. Born in Cairo to Sudanese parents he has lived in Vienna since 1984. He has two novels in English translation, Cities without Palms (2009), a highly topical tale of young Hamza’s desperate attempt to escape famine and disease by starting an odyssey of travel and migration, and its sequel The Palm House (2012), where Hamza struggles in Vienna against marginalisation, with both translated by Kareem James Abu-Zeid.
