Arabology Interviews Jordanian Novelist Fadi Zaghmout (February 2018)

https://soundcloud.com/arabology/fadizaghmout
I am proud to share this radio interview which I conducted on Feb 21, 2018 with Jordanian novelist فادي زغموت Fadi Zaghmout whose first two novels, both best sellers in the Middle East, managed to defy and subvert various notions of gender and sexuality in the Arab world. In this interview, Fadi talks about his 2 groundbreaking novels (both available in English translation) while giving us a preview of his third, forthcoming novel "Laila and the Lamb."
