Arab Jazz: Re-reading in French

As I mentioned in a previous blog on Arab Jazz  here , the author Karim Miske did come to Belfast for the Belfast Book Festival.

There was a good crowd, around 40, and it was a relaxed and intimate evening at the Crescent Arts Centre.  Karim was interviewed by local broadcaster Malachi O'Doherty who felt that Arab Jazz was a wonderful book and it wasn't long before we had a couple of readings... again no spoilers... so if you haven't read it yet, go get yourself a copy.

For my part, I got myself a copy of the original in French and it's great to see what a great job was made of the translation.

All the same, I know how it ends!
