Identifying as a Muslim, feminist, and gay writer, Fatima Daas is becoming the new voice of her generation. She will present her novel The Last One which won her the prestigious Prix Les Inrockuptibles at the Institut. Drawn from her experiences growing up in a Paris banlieue, her powerful, lyric debut explores the diverse, often conflicting facets of her identity. Catch her at the Limerick Festival (26 Feb), the Institut français d’Ecosse (28 Feb), and at the Alliance Française de Glasgow (1 March) as well.
This talk will be chaired by Diyora Shadijanova, first person and opinions editor at gal-dem, and will follow a book club at 6pm.
