What impact has this surge of interest in Arabic literature had on the writers, translators and readers of these works?

There has been a significant growth in the availability of works by Arab authors in the English language in recent years, as well as a rise in the number of Arab authors winning mainstream literary prizes. However, what impact has this surge of interest in Arabic literature had on the writers, translators and readers of these works?

British Syrian writer Robin Yassin Kassab chairs a discussion of this phenomenon with award-winning Iraqi poet, novelist and translator Sinan Antoon, acclaimed British Palestinian novelist and playwright Selma Debbagh, Marcia Lynx Qualey, founder of the Arabic Literature in English website, and author, scholar and translator Professor Daniel Newman.
