Show Summary Details


After the Al–Khubz al–hafi crisis ended, Magda al–Nowaihi and the author organized a panel at MESA 2000 on Censorship and the Arab Literary Imaginary. Magda was ready for all the battles, having fought yet another of her own battles against chemotherapy just before the scheduled panel. After the panel, she walked out of a full auditorium ready for commitments: list of contributors, areas to be covered, and joint editorial work for the book. However, the work remained unfinished. Magda passed away on June 2, 2002 after a long and courageous battle. This book serves as a tribute to her, a very similar project to what Magda and the author had planned.
