Not on the same page about Dubai’s big book sale

The National - News - - OPINION -

With ref­er­ence to your piece Why the al­lure of Dubai’s Big Bad Wolf book sale is too great

to re­sist (Oc­to­ber 26), it wasn’t that great over­all. The staff were amaz­ing, but, from what I could see, there was a very small sec­tion of Ara­bic books, no Is­lamic books, not even the Qu­ran – which is a bit odd for a book fair in the Mid­dle East – no lan­guages other than English and Ara­bic, and no clas­sic English lit­er­a­ture.
