Interview with 2017 Caine Prize Winner: Bushra al-Fadil

The African country Sudan is not known as a hotbed of literature. I do not know if this is a reflection of the present literary scene. But there is at least one exception. It is the writer Bushra al-Fadil. He is not the young and upcoming writer, that has just left secondary school and wrote his first book right after that. 

Here you will find an email interview with this writer near his retirement age.
