Death, every day
Syrian author Khaled Khalifa is one of the few who can leave his homeland but chooses not to. He ranks as one of Syria’s greatest living authors, and a chronicler of the present war. His most recent novel, Death is Hard Work, deals with a grotesque and burlesque-like road trip from Damascus to Anabiya with a corpse in the baggage.
Khalifa meets Syria expert, journalist and author Diana Darke for a conversation on what happens when death becomes commonplace.
