Interview with shortlisted author Tareq Bakari


Tareq Bakari

Where were you at the shortlist announcement and what was your reaction to the news?

The day of the shortlist announcement I was in Tahanaout city on the outskirts of Marrakesh. I knew the announcement would be broadcast live on a particular channel and, because of the time difference, I had to wake up early. I was very happy that Numedia found itself a place on the shortlist.


What does it mean to you to be shortlisted?
