Kingston University creative writing graduate Sumia Sukkar’s debut novel inspired by Syrian conflict dramatised on BBC Radio 4


A 22-year-old Kingston University creative writing graduate whose career as a professional writer has already had an impressive launch is soaring higher still as, just over a year after publication, her debut novel has been dramatised for BBC Radio 4.

Sumia Sukkar’s book ‘The Boy from Aleppo Who Painted the War’ tells the story of the ongoing conflict in Syria through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy with Aspergers Syndrome. Since its release by Eyewear Publishing in summer 2013 – the day after Sumia’s degree graduation ceremony – the novel has already prompted a raft of enthusiastic reviews.
