The Fourth Passenger is traveling to Dubai…
…along with its charming and very busy author.
In her debut novel, Mini Nair describes the determination of four women to overcome the religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims that result in rioting and terrorism in India. In a recent review of The Fourth Passenger, John Michael Overman explains, “the soul of this book is not entirely in its gender complexity, but more so in its consuming conflict that threatens the stability of Mumbai.”
Dar Al Adaab is situated in evocative Bastakiya, the historic center of Dubai. For additional information about the event venue, follow the literature festival’s Facebook page or see the news video coverage of Dar Al Adaab’s grand opening. You’ll want to go.
