Translated to Arabic, «Gould's Book of Fish», a novel by Australian author Richard Flanagan. «Gould's Book of Fish (2001), Flanagan's third novel, is based on the life of William Buelow Gould, a convict artist, and tells the tale of his love affair with a young black woman in 1828. It won the 2002 Commonwealth Writers' Prize.» (Wikipedia)
Acclaimed as a masterpiece around the world, «Gould’s Book of Fish» is at once a marvelously imagined epic of nineteenth-century Australia and a contemporary fable, a tale of horror, and a celebration of love, all transformed by a convict painter into pictures of fish.
