On Intergenerational Stories

Family stories don’t belong to just one person so of course, when setting out to tell their story, Lamisse and Hazem Hamouda wrote theirs together. In this conversation between father and daughter, the two writers discuss the intergenerational approach to their co-written book, The Shape of Dust.
