Vlnr Mohammad Rabie, Leni Zumas en Aafke Romeijn

Writer and journalist Fiep van Bodegom talked to authors Leni Zumas (US), Mohammad Rabie (Egypt) and Aafke Romeijn (Netherlands) about their expectations and speculations about the near future. All three recently published futuristic novels. In Red Clocks, Zumas portrays women in a future US where abortion and IVF are banned and and adoption is illegal for single mothers. In Rabie's Otared, a police sniper joins the underground resistance movement when half of Cairo is occupied by mercenaries. And in Concept M, Romeijn presents a surprising sketch of radicalization in the Netherlands in the year 2020.
