Mohammed Hanif is “Pakistan’s brightest voice” (Guardian). With Ulrich Noethen


English/German

A US fighter pilot crashes in the desert somewhere in the Middle East. His rescuers just happen to come from the very refugee camp he was supposed to bomb, where he encounters some pretty curious characters ... Mohammed Hanif’s novel Red Birds is a “an absurdist riff on modern conflict with shades of Catch-22” (Guardian). Hanif was a fighter pilot in the Pakistani air force and lives in Karachi, where he works as an author and journalist. Host: Angela Spizig German text: Ulrich Noethen
