The Observer reviews the novel Hold by Michael Donkor:
At times, there are flashes of Jane Eyre in Belinda’s role as a “governess” of sorts, but there is no Mr Rochester to save her from her life, nor a sugary ending. The focus is on the love that flows between women and the need for Belinda to find a place that feels like home. (Arifa Akbar)
L'Orient Le Jour traces a profile of the author and journalist Rula Jebreal:
Elle célèbre l’intarissable dévouement de ses professeurs, « immense source d’inspiration », et cite à répétition des auteurs tels Franz Kafka, Nizar Kabbani, Charlotte Brontë ou Margaret Atwood, « qui m’ont autorisée, d’une certaine manière, à réécrire ma propre histoire ». (Gilles Khoury) (Translation)
