Asad, Shaaban and Me

with one comment

I was on BBC Radio 4’s The World Tonight again last night, again talking about Syria. Boutheina Shaaban – translator of Chinua Achebe’s excellent novel ‘Things Fall Apart’ into Arabic, but someone who has clearly forgotten the value of words – comes before me. Unfortunately the dispute over Abdullah Gul at the end (I was right) made me forget what I was talking about.

  1. I find myself in the unfortunate position of agreeing with you. And I wish every one of Buthaina Shaaban’s promises were true. Nice correction of the presenter.
