Saudi French creativity through two novels and a collection of stories – Saudi News


French readers receive translations of Omaima Al-Khamis’s novel “Al Bahriyat” by Omaima Al-Khamis on (Dar Larmatan), “The Critical Status of the so-called K” by Aziz Muhammad (Dar Akt Sud – Sinbad), and the short story collection “The Art of Abandonment” by Abdallah Nasir on (Dar Larmatan). Recent translations of qualitative works provide an opportunity for the French elites and the Francophone world to see Saudi creativity through the narrative powerfully present in the Arab scene.Omaima Al-Khamis considers her novel “Al Bahriyat” a novel of generations with weight in the local and Arab novel, and she attributed to drawing attention to her because it dealt with generations in a way that does not separate each generation from the other, but rather blends generations. She sees her first experience in writing, and she experienced feelings of fear and anxiety during her writing, which revolves around the experience of Shami women who came to the Arabian Peninsula as wives of Saudis.
