Iman Mersal reads from Traces of Enayat


View Linked Books

Award-winning Egyptian poet Iman Mersal visits the Lighthouse garden to introduce us to Traces of Enayat - a genre-porous, courageous book following the life of the writer Enayat al-Zayyat, who died by suicide four years before her novel was published, and whose work was omitted from literary archives.

Iman tells us about the background to the book and shares an excerpt in the original Arabic, followed by a translation by Robin Moger, read by writer and bookseller Mohamed Tonsy.

Traces of Enayat is one of Mohamed's top three books of 2023 - read more here!
