Fiction and Autobiography by Arab Writers in English
This study grew out of an idea initially given to me by Peter Clark – a continual source of inspiration – and it was first aired in a paper I delivered at a conference on comparative literature at Kuwait Univer- sity in March 2001. I wish to thank colleagues in the Culture Area of the School of Arts, Design, Media and Culture at the University of Sunderland for allowing me study leave in 2005 during which period this book was substantially written. Thanks are also due to Fadia Faqir for her many kindnesses and for allowing me perusal of her novel while still in manuscript; to Jamal Mahjoub for responding to my questions when this project was still at an early stage; and to Leila Aboulela for her openness in offering information. I would also like to acknowledge the use of the following librar- ies and the help given me by their staff: the University of Durham Library, and the London School of African and Oriental Studies Library.
