Censuur is gunstig voor een auteur


na 35":
BBC-WS: Your novel “Secrets and Lies”, it sounds as though it could very well be a critique of the government and of the state of things in Syria, but presumably if you want to be read in that country, you need to write in a slightly oblique way, may be to do things as fables or as metaphors?
Ghalia Qabbani: Yeah, I mean this is how do you feel that you became, become a skilled writer, you know. How to avoid, what you think that will be censored or banned. But I mean, in the meantime, most writers in Syria try to publish outside. I mean, if you can’t do this, if you can’t avoid what you think that will be banned, so it’s better to publish outside.
