I took time out from writing fiction last year to contribute the introduction to this new book, edited by Associate Professor Mustafa Taibi from Western Sydney University. In writing the introduction I took the opportunity to honour the memory of the Iraqi scholar Dr. Safa Khulusi, whose Arabic classes I attended at the Polytechnic of Central London in the seventies.
The invitation to write the introduction evoked warm memories of academic colleagues, teachers, and students from the Arab World.
