So, as some people are saying that in a recent attempt to have some of that spotlight for himself, Egyptian Novelist Ahmed Mourad has stated something that a lot have deemed really controversial!
The young writer has stated that he believes that some of the writings of the Legendary and Nobel Prize Winner Naguib Mahfouz “does not represent the current generation because they are slow-paced”. This statement was made by Mourad at the 28th edition of Al-Sharjah International Book Fair.
But this didn’t really slide and caught all people’s attention because two other major characters felt the need to comment on what Mourad has said; Naguib Sawiris and Amr Waked.
Check out what they said below:
