Bahraini author set to launch fourth book
Manama, February 3, 2014
An award-winning Bahraini author is set to launch his latest book in Bahrain.
Ali Al Saeed will unveil his fourth publication, The Randomist, at the Albareh Art Gallery on February 9, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
The novel, which was almost 10 years in the making, features a catalogue of non-fiction writings, personal essays, columns and blog posts chronicling the author's life, his travels and discusses everything from traditional customs to childhood memories.
"This book is the most personal because it talks about things I've been through, things I believe in," said Al Saeed.
The launch will kick-start a regional book tour where Al Saeed will host talks and readings in Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait and Oman.
He is the winner of the Bahrain Outstanding Book of the Year Award in 2005 and author of the novel QuixotiQ, the short story collection Moments and the poetry book Sad Man Dancing.
The Randomist is available to order online in paperback and e-book format as well as from selected bookstores. - TradeArabia News Service
