Kamal Al-Solaylee, the author of Intolerable: A Memoir of Extremes, is the featured author in a new Writers’ Trust of Canada initiative, the Authors’ Series.
“It’s a big deal for me,” says Al-Solaylee.
His book, which was shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for non-fiction, is set in the Middle East and Canada.
“It’s about my relationship with my family,” Al-Solaylee told Xtra in 2012. “It’s about coming out as a gay man in the Middle East, then pursuing the life I wanted for myself.”
