The only offensive thing about my novel is that it’s been banned

Geraldine Bedell – “I originally hoped to launch my novel, The Gulf Between Us, at the first Dubai literary festival, which kicks off next week. But I won’t be there because the book has been banned. It seemed a perfect fit. Mine is the only novel I know of in English (but I can’t think there are many in Arabic, either) set in a Gulf emirate. Most of the action takes place in a small fictional state called Hawar, which means either “little camel” or “dispute” in Arabic.”
