Hassan Daoud: "The West wants us to be exotic"

january 2008 -

Lebanese author and journalist Hassan Daoud (1950) has noticed how interest in his work and that of his colleagues from the Islamic world has increased since 9/11. Arab literature received central focus during the Frankfurter Buchmesse in 2004 and will enjoy the same status during Winternachten in The Hague in January 2008. Daoud is pleased with all of the attention, but has a few critical comments.
