Magdy El Shafee Publishes “Metro” in English

By Susan Harris

It's Metro Day at WWB. We're celebrating the publication of Magdy El Shafee's graphic novel, available today from Metropolitan Books in Chip Rossetti's translation. Readers will recall that WWB published an extract in February 2008, and that the book was seized on publication in Egypt and Magdy and his publisher put on trial. You can hear Magdy talk about his book in this interview. The book has appeared in Italy but is still not available in the original Arabic, in Egypt or elsewhere.
