Suhayl Saadi, is a writer most of us here in the US have not heard of. In our Jhumpha Lahiri obsessed culture, it is refreshing to see new faces, and hear new voices.
Suhayl Saadi born in Beverly, East Yorkshire. He moved to Glasgow when he was four and since then he has lived there. He is a widely published Glasgow-based novelist, poet, and short story writer. Recently his work has appeared in the Pocketbooks collections Wish I Was Here, Atoms of Delight and Without Day; and he has founded and continues to run the highly successful creative writing forum, Pollokshields Writers’ Group in Glasgow, which is aimed at writers from minority ethnic backgrounds. The Burning Mirror, in which the short story “Bandanna” appears, is his first short story collection. But more than anything, I am personally waiting to read, his forthcoming book, Psycho Raag details the life of an Asian Scottish DJ
