BANKSY’S A GE­NIUS

Khaleej Times - - NATION -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the writer of the ar­ti­cle: Banksy did it for char­ity. How’s that for cre­ative de­struc­tion? (KT, Oct12). The ar­ti­cle is a work of a ge­nius in fic­tion writ­ing. In­ven­tive, imag­i­na­tive and stylish as Mitch Al­bom (there are many more; this is the first name that came to my mind). I par­tic­u­larly liked the line “Re­mem­ber this let­ter, too, is self­de­struc­tive,” in Banksy’s let­ter, which was fol­lowed by the let­ter be­ing blown into Thames. One doesn’t learn such art of writ­ing by read­ing or writ­ing; it is a gift. I sug­gest the au­thor should start writ­ing fic­tion. —Fahim Khan, Dubai
