The Attack is the second novel in a trilogy in which Khadra sets out to describe the contemporary Middle East, in particular the galvanising power of Islamic fundamentalism. Set in Israel, it tells the story of a successful Arab-Israeli surgeon suddenly confronted by the shocking news that his wife has blown herself up in a crowded restaurant. In his first UK appearance since the publication of The Attack, he discussed terrorism, the Western confusion about the Arab world and, ultimately, the power of literature.
