Mohammed Hassan Alwan Jana Elhassan
The authors’ work explores the complications of family life and themes of migration, memory and destiny. In Elhassan’s Me, She and the Other Women, a woman left frustrated and lonely by her marriage constructs a new identity in her imagination. Hassan Alwan’s The Beaver plots a man’s memories of a fragmented and troubled family history as he embarks on a series of fishing trips in the USA, far from his Saudi Arabian homeland.
Elhassan and Hassan Alwan discuss their work and the contemporary literary scene in the Middle East and wider Arab world.
