On my latest episode of Matt’s Art Chat, I speak with my friend, Egyptian author Mirna El Mahdy. I met Mirna two years ago at the Cairo International Film Festival two years ago. Shortly after that, I found out that she had published her first novel. This chat was recorded on the eve of the launch of her second published work.
On this chat, Mirna and I talk about influences, inspiration, writing techniques and more. We also talk about ghosts, with Mirna making references to Egyptian mythology.
