Ahmed Saadawi – Edinburgh International Book Festival

16th July, 2018

Frankenstein in Baghdad, set in the rubble-strewn streets of US-occupied Iraq, is Ahmed Saadawi’s third novel, winning the International Prize for Arabic Fiction. In the Valley of the Sun is Andy Davidson’s first, and has Travis Stillwell wandering the back roads of Texas searching out women to feed on. Two centuries after Mary Shelley created Frankenstein, the authors each offer a modern take on her fascinating and enduring tale, which they discuss today.
