Il Manifesto features Hoda Barakat

Il Manifesto, May, 2020

In an interview to Il Manifesto, Hoda Barakat, first woman to win the prestigious International Prize for Arabic fiction 2019 (or Arab Booker) shares:

«I think it is extraordinary that in a world characterized by hyper-communicability, communication has become our biggest challenge »
«I have no idea what the “after” world will be like… I don’t trust humans as to their ability to learn from what happens to them. Through
out their history they have rarely learned the right lessons».
