It’s episode 80 with Juman Malouf talking about her excellent middle grade book, The Trilogy Of Two. Juman is such an interesting guest with a background that includes fashion and art as well as costume and set design. Her book is beautifully written and illustrated and it was fascinating to hear how she works as well as her journey into writing.
Juman Malouf was born in Beirut, Lebanon and grew up in London. She graduated from Brown University with a BA in Fine Arts and Art History. Later, she received an MFA from the Tisch School of the Arts for Set and Costume Design. She has designed and illustrated for theatre, and films including The Grand Budapest Hotel and Moonrise Kingdom, and worked in fashion both in the US and Europe. The Trilogy of Two is her first novel and is out now with Pushkin Press.
