SARAH -- <i>scornfully.</i> -- If you are, it's a clumsy man you are this night, Michael Byrne <i>(raising her voice)</i>; and let you make haste now, or herself will be coming with the porter. MICHAEL -- <i>defiantly, raising his voice.</i>* Let me make haste?

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
