In an interview to Il Manifesto, Hoda Barakat, first woman to win the prestigious International Prize for Arabic fiction 2019 (or Arab Booker) shares:
«I think it is extraordinary that in a world characterized by hyper-communicability, communication has become our biggest challenge »
«I have no idea what the “after” world will be like… I don’t trust humans as to their ability to learn from what happens to them. Through
out their history they have rarely learned the right lessons».
