Naïm Kattan


Born in Baghdad in 1928, Kattan immigrated to Canada in 1954, where he became interested in the country’s intellectual life, quickly integrating into it. Journalist, novelist, essayist and playwright, literary critic, professor and cultural administrator, fervent defender of the French language, he has written hundreds of literary reviews and nearly 50 works on topics such as the diversity of human relations and the coexistence of different cultures. L’amour encore, a collection of short stories is his most recent publication. In 2015, a collection of his theatre plays will be released by the University of Rouen. He is currently working with Joe Balass on the script of Akram the Surrealist.
