The leading Lebanese writer Hanan al-Shaykh was just seven years old when her mother, Kamila, sought a divorce from her father, who ran a strictly religious household. She read from and discussed her memoir The Locust and The Bird: My Mother’s Story with Esther Freud, the author of Hideous Kinky and The Sea House, as part of the London Review Bookshop’s World Literature Weekend.
