Event Details

An Indie Next selection for July and garnering rave pre-pub reviews and accolades from Matt Ruff, Neil Gaiman and Gregory Maguire, ALIF THE UNSEEN is an enchanting, incredibly timely adventure that begins with Alif, a young hacker in an unnamed emirate.

Tormented by love and on the run from the security state, Alif stars in this smart and beguiling tale of "hacktivism" in the Middle East, a magical story complete with jinn and a Lexicon of the Unseen where gaming culture collides full-tilt with The Thousand and One Nights.

Wilson is the author of the acclaimed cult graphic novels,Cairo, Air and reboot Vixen series as well as a memoir, the Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman's Journey to Love and Islam, as well as many published pieces on Islam, and the politics of faith in both the US and the Middle East. ALIF THE UNSEEN was born out of Wilson’s growing awareness that serious change was being set in motion in the Middle East through the increasing popularity of social media and the new conversations that the internet had made possible.

Wilson’s awareness quickly proved accurate, and the book, finished just before the protests broke out in Tahrir Square, assumed an eerie prescience as the Arab Spring bloomed all over the region.
