Published by Quercus Books, Karama: Journeys through the Arab Spring is Johnny West’s tour of Tunisia, Libya and Egypt during the months of the Arab Spring. A journey taken through the backstreets and small towns of the area, Karama (the Arabic word for dignity) is not just contextual reportage – it is an intimate discovery of the people and places existing under the most extraordinary circumstances.
'West, a former Reuters correspondent in Cairo, plunges into this confusion with bright-eyed curiosity and a natural storyteller's appreciation of disconcerting detail. His tendency to pick up the threads of cafe conversation takes him into strange corners scarcely noticed by news reporters' - Financial Times
Entry €4 - with a complimentary drink
