“I Like Calling Myself a Thief”: An Interview with Rabih Alameddine

Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 7.59.46 PMI recently sat down with Lebanese author Rabih Alameddine to ask him, among other things, why he wished me blue hair when he signed my copy of An Unnecessary Woman at a reading at the Asian American Writers Workshop last year.

His lovely explanation– plus his the rest of our conversation on translation, creativity, appropriation, Crime and Punishment, Kim Kardashian’s butt, and more– is now online  at Words Without Borders.
