Michael Mohammed Ahmad
Powerful, passionate and provocative, Michael Mohammed Ahmad challenges Australia’s perception of multicultural identities. His writing explores tribalism, underpinned by the potential for understanding and change.
His first novel, The Tribe, introduced readers to the complex family life of protagonist Bani Adam, a young boy from a religious Lebanese Muslim family in western Sydney. His new book The Lebs is a resonant novel that also tackles the issue of what it is like to be a Lebanese –Australian.
Michael Mohammed Ahmad is an Arab-Australian Writer, editor, teacher and community arts worker. He is the founder and director of Sweatshop, a literacy movement in Western Sydney devoted to empowering culturally and linguistically diverse artists through creative writing.
