AUC Press Launches New Literary Imprint


On December 11 each year the AUC Press celebrates its longstanding relationship with the great writer by awarding the Naguib Mahfouz Medal for Literature to an outstanding Arabic novel. At its beginning in 1996, Mahfouz said of the award, “I hope that this prize will also help to discover new talents in Arabic literature and introduce them to readers around the world.”

Since then, the AUC Press has continued to look for ways to introduce first-time and established writers to a wider global audience, and, today, we are the single largest print and e-book publisher of Arabic literature in translation.

In keeping with this tradition, the AUC Press is currently launching a new literary imprint, with the aim of bringing together the best writing both from and about the Middle East, and distributing it to a broad international audience.

Our first four novels illustrate the diversity of writing that will characterize Hoopoe: from political satire to crime and noir; from modern epic to historical saga.
