Comma is currently working to develop a special translation imprint working with Arabic short story writers.
We have previously published seven books translated from Arabic (or largely Arabic) original material:
Madinah: City Stories from the Middle East, edited by Joumana Haddad.
The Madman of Freedom Square, by Hassan Blasim
The Iraqi Christ, by Hassan Blasim
The Book of Gaza, edited by Atef Abu Saif
The Drone Eats with Me: A Gaza War Diary, by Atef Abu Saif
The Book of Khartoum, edited by Raph Cormack & Max Shmookler
Iraq + 100, edited by Hassan Blasim
Longer term, we are planning to identify short story writers working across the Arab world, initially commissioning single stories from them, and then building towards full collections.
