(Virtual) CM Salon on Humour

**Click here to watch the webinar**

Join writer, literary critic and regular CM contributor Boyd Tonkin for a virtual CM Salon, in which he discusses with Critical Muslim editors, contributors and fellow readers, his essay 'War of the Words' published in the Humour issue, celebrating the wordplay in Ahmad Faris' al-Shidyaq's Leg Over Leg, as part of a wider conversation we invite you to participate in, on humour within Muslim contexts.

Boyd, who was literary editor of The Independent newspaper from 1996 to 2013, is author of 100 Best Novels in Translation, which is published by Galileo.
