One author I very much enjoyed meeting in Ubud was Imran Ahmad (right above with ABC broadcaster Annie Gastin). Imran writes about his experiences growing up Muslim in Britain most engagingly in his memoir Unimagined : A Muslim Boy Meets the West which I've marked down as a must-read.
Well last night, Imran wrote to send me a link to his not-quite-a-blog with his delightful account of the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (entitled, with a beautiful irony as you will see, Why, oh why, do these awful things always happen to me?).
There's much else interesting to read on the site so do go poke around.
I am trying to twist Imran's arm to come visit us over here. My worry is that he has been totally spoiled by the Bali experience!
