Khalifa’s “There are no knives” is awarded the Naguib Mahfouz Medal for Literature 2013

This prize, awarded since 1996 is a major award for contemporary Arabic literature.

The award is presented annually on December 11, the birthday of Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz, by the President of the American University in Cairo in the presence of the Minister of Culture and many other prominent leaders of Egypt’s cultural life.

Exceptionally, and for the first time, the winner of the prize was unable to receive the award in person. Khaled Khalifa was not given permission to leave Syria by the authorities.
