Karama: Journeys into the Arab Spring with Johnny West

Schönleinstraße 31
10967 Berlin, Germany

The award winning former Reuters Middle East correspondent Johnny West joins journalist Thomas Newdick at Dialogue Books to explore the lives and stories behind the Arab Spring.

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
