Seattle author G. Willow Wilson’s new novel “Alif the Unseen” is a unique book – set in an unnamed Arab county, it follows the adventures of a young computer hacker who courts danger as he mixes up revolution and unrequited love. There’s even some magic and mysticism in the mix.
Wilson, a converted Muslim who has lived for extended periods in the Middle East, is an articulate observer of the currents of repression and revolution that have recently roiled that part of the world. Terry Tazioli interviews her tonight on “Well Read,” state public access channel TVW’s books and authors program. You can see it at 7 and 10 p.m., or you can view it here:
