We are so incredibly grateful and excited that we have writer Saleem Haddad on our podcast! This was an excellent discussion during which we talked about Saleem’s novel Guapa, some of his essays, and his latest work. “Marco” is a short film that Saleem wrote and directed; it just premiered recently in Tunisia and the UK. It’s a 20-minute film that carried the intellectual & emotional weight of a full-length film. It’s powerful and will stay in your mind longterm. Follow @marcoshortfilm on Instagram to stay updated on when and where you can see it.
During this episode, we also got to hear Saleem talk about the transition from living in London to living in the less bustling atmosphere of Lisbon. If you have not read Guapa yet, please do. Saleem’s essays (which you can find on his website) are also gorgeous.
