New Bidoun

Great new issue of Bidoun out--the interview issues are always my favourites.

There is a lot of wonderful content available online, including Elizabeth Rubin's interview of Pakistani writer Daniyal Mueenuddi (whose "In Other Rooms, Other Wonders" should be on your reading list) and Negar Azimi's profile of the Lebanese comic artists behind the tri-lingual, graphic publication Samandal (below are a few snapshots from the first issue, available for download).

(Disclaimer: I also have a small piece in this issue, a review of the Kennedy Center's "Arabesque" festival).
