What People are Saying About This

Margaret Litvin

Like Familiar’s earlier work with Hoda Barakat, this abridgement is a wonder: faithful, yet precisely calibrated to meet and stretch the vocabulary of advanced undergraduate Arabic learners. Al-Sanousi’s half-Kuwaiti Filipino narrator broaches topics most contemporary Arabic fiction will not touch. Familiar & Assaf’s exercises give students 80 pages of context, tools, and confidence for an intelligent discussion. Good for classrooms in the Arab world, too.
