Seasons of migration to the North

"Citing the EU document, the International Herald Tribune reports that because of Europe’s close proximity to North Africa and the Middle East, both of which are vulnerable to the pressures caused by climate change, “migratory pressure at the EU’s borders and political instability and conflict could increase.”" (Thanks Sabina)

And a great book too.

Did you read the book in ARabic? I read "The Wedding of Zain" and other stories, noticed how he seems like WIlliam Faulkner's cousin - don't know if he was influenced by Faulkner but the use of time and the depiction of characters within a village reminded me of the complex shifting timescapes and character studies in Faulkner.
