Launching: Amjad Nasser’s ‘Land of No Rain’

Land of No Rain is Jordanian poet Amjad Nasser’s first novel, and it arrived in 2010 to wide acclaim, including plaudits from Ahdaf Soueif and Elias Khoury. It’s now been translated by Jonathan Wright — the co-winner of this year’s Banipal translation prize — and will get its English-language launch April 30.
