Kubra Khademi, Ayelet Gundar Goshen, Anne Tyler
Performance artist Kubra Khademi on death threats, Israeli novelist Ayelet Gundar, author Anne Tyler on writing and director Hermon Hailay on Ethiopian movie Price of Love.
The Afghan performance artist Kubra Khademi on why she walked down a busy Kabul street wearing a metal suit exaggerating her breasts and buttocks, and on receiving death threats. Magic, and the creative process that leads to it through art, with Brazilian artist Laura Lima.
Does the harpischord sound like "skeletons copulating on a tin roof” as some suggest? Virtuoso Mahan Esfahani argues for the unloved instrument in a witty documentary essay. Israeli novelist Ayelet Gundar-Goshen discusses the translation of her pre-state Israel book, One Night, Markovitch.
We speak to Hermon Hailay one of Africa’s few women directors about Price of Love, a new movie from Ethiopia.
Also we head to Baltimore to visit author Anne Tyler’s house and discuss her methods of writing fiction. And, Dor
the Nors sends us a literary postcard from Denmark with news of essential Scandinavian writing.
