On Thursday 28th May 2009, celebrated Egyptian writer Alaa Al Aswany will be talking about his international bestseller 'The Yacoubian Building' on World Book Club.

World Book Club need questions to be emailed from outside Britain and if you're in the UK they need guests to be part of the audience at BBC Bush House in London at 16.15 hrs.

If you would like to put a question to Alaa Al Aswany about THE YACOUBIAN BUILDING, please email .

Ostensibly set in 1990 at the time of the first Gulf War and interweaving the stories of a group of diverse characters who live and work in downtown Cairo 'The Yacoubian Building' is a compelling yet scathing portrayal of modern Egyptian society since the Revolution of 1952.
