"I found that many other interviews about Abdellah Taia has sensationalised aspects of his life but when you take the time to talk to him, you realise how he experienced many thoughts, feelings and reactions many gay youths go through in their lives. An attraction to his brother is similar to that which we experience as we grow up and reconcile feelings inside our self.
Abdellah Taia's story is both interesting and relatable and I hope you enjoy the experience of listening to him as much as I did talking with an inspirational man who follows his dreams and sees beauty in the gloom".
