A collection of Libyan fiction in Banipal 40: Magazine of Modern Arab Literature

Estelle Jobson

Abstract


By sheer coincidence, just as the political unrest erupted in Libya in early 2011, a first-ever collection of Libyan fiction was published by Banipal. The publication is prefaced by a statement supported by more than 400 Arab intellectuals, writers and journalists pertaining to the recent events in Bahrain, Libya and Yemen. Collaboratively, they condemn the corruption in governmental regimes and the kowtowing Arab media, from whom they unanimously disassociate themselves. This publication is both a political manifesto and a sparkling mosaic of literary faces, genres and words from Libya.
