AMMAN — The Ministry of Culture on Thursday selected four Jordanian novels by the late Ghalib Halasa, the late Munis Razzaz, Samiha Khreis and Ahmad Tarawneh to be translated into English, in cooperation with the University of Michigan Press, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The translation of national novels into other languages aims to introduce Jordanian literature and its writers to the rest of the world, the ministry said in a press release. He added that translation is a means of spreading culture to reduce “the gap between people and nations”.
