    The issue of religious fundamentalism is constantly present in the news media and therefore readers have particular expectations of these kinds of stories. You approach her almost shyly, recounting her life, before crossing the sea into Spain, mainly through the prism of Larbi Amrani, whilst the other 3 characters are presented directly. Sihem Bensedrine, a rights activist harassed by Mr Ben Ali's regime, said the move against the station was worrying. I always find it hard to pinpoint specific literary influences, because in some way everything that I read or experience or see influences me.

    Speaking at google, you talked about your background and how you came to write in English, and the distance it affords you Larbi and Leila book a writer. For example, did you ever consider locating the story in a nameless context between north and south? A questionable voice — The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid Hopes and dreams are the stuff of calculations, and conditional clauses; if I do x, then hopefully y will come my way. After the illegal immigration attempt, 2 of those characters returned home to a different life than before slightly better than before and 2 continued to Spain, immigrated illegally for a future different from their dreams, but still better than what they had.

    What made you choose this approach, which works brilliantly but has the ever-present risk of upsetting the symmetry of the novel? In this clear, short, and easy to read book, the author depicted through the 4 different characters the Larbi and Leila book social and economic problems Moroccans face on a daily basis still of actuality today and offered readers with a general and detailed realistic pictures of how Moroccans live today. The impetus came from reading a report relegated to the back pages of Le Monde about fifteen Moroccan immigrants who had drowned while trying to navigate the ten mile stretch that separates Morocco from Spain, or Europe from Africa. The station was back on the air within hours, however. I admire and appreciate the fact that he tries to write about the world around him; I just happen to disagree very strongly with his views.

All the calculations and aspirations of the characters rest on one condition first, achieving distance from their native Morocco even the wealthy Larbi Amrani thinks in terms of his daughter studying in New York.

Finally, a less long-winded but perhaps more difficult question: What writers have meant most to you as a novelist, and why? The character of Faten was probably the hardest to write. The novel is the interwoven stories of four of the Larbi and Leila book, some who made it to Spain and some who did not.

I wanted a title that would contain both the positive and negative aspects of the immigration experience. You approach her almost shyly, recounting her life, before crossing the sea into Spain, mainly through the prism of Larbi Amrani, whilst Larbi and Leila book other 3 characters are presented directly.

I have Larbi and Leila book writing all of my life, and have blogged for the last seven years. How important was it for you to ground the story with specific details that the Moroccan setting affords? She showed well, the general uncertainty of their future, the desperate state of their current lives, their lack of choices and their only remaining chance for hope of a future is to immigrate illegally the country.

After the illegal immigration attempt, 2 of those characters returned home to a different life than before slightly better than before and 2 continued to Spain, immigrated illegally for a future different from their dreams, but still better than what they had.

Each character undergoes a transformation, including the ones who never make it to Spain. In this book, the author described clearly and concisely in the first chapter such a trip by a group of people leaving Tangiers to Tarifa on a Zodiac boat, fleeing a known past to reach an uncertain future.

While both Aziz and Murad spend time drinking coffee and pondering their fate, both Faten and Halima face their futures head on. How important is distance for a novelist? But the person they paid to take them to shore, stops short of the shore and drops them off, when some of the passengers cannot swim.

A very dangerous gamble. There is, it seems to me, a very pronounced split in Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits along gender lines.

So I wanted a title that had both hope and danger in it, which is how it came about. I blog because I like to have a space in which to record my thoughts and opinions about literature or culture or world events.

Sihem Bensedrine, a rights activist harassed by Mr Ben Ali's regime, said the move against the station was worrying. The authorities said Ben Ali had left behind militias that clashed with the army, which has imposed an ongoing night curfew.

The protests, which have not let up, have so far been peaceful with police on Saturday and Sunday allowing protesters to break through barricades placed at the prime minister's compound.
