He is a dentist who not only talks to his patients while they sit down with their mouth wide open (from fear?). He also writes, and maybe his reader sit down with their mouth wide open (from astonishment?)

His name is Alaa al-Aswani (1957), in this interview he talks about the situation in Egypte (were the days of Mubarak better than the present days) and his literary work. 

 Alaa al-Aswani, 1957 in Kairo geboren, ist Zahnarzt und zählt zu den bekanntesten Schriftstellern Ägyptens. Mit seinem literarischen Debut „Der Jakubijân-Bau“, in dem er die ägyptische Gesellschaft unter Langzeitherrscher Mubarak porträtiert, wurde er international berühmt. Al-Aswani ist politisch engagiert. Er war vor der Revolution in der Oppositionsbewegung „Kifaja“ (dt. „Genug!“) aktiv.
