This time it's a girl!!
Almost one year following the release of my novel - the first by a Bahraini written in English - another young Bahraini author breaks into the literature scene with her debut novel Yummah. This one, however, is set in Bahrain.
I failed to make it to her book launch last night but I'm hoping to get a chance to meet her soon, and to read her book. Which, by the way, you can now purchase through amazon and the likes. You can read more about Sarah Al Shafei and her novel in today's Gulf Daily News.
Big congratulations to Sarah on her achivement. It's good to see more Bahrainis venturing into the world of writing and publishing, specifically English literature.
Well done Sarah.
