In an interview with MoroccoBoard TV, Laila Lalami took issue with her comparisons to Moroccan Writer Tahar Ben Jelloun, as the marquee Moroccan author in English. She said that she couldnt start believing all the hype that is being written out there. "It is dangerous for an author to do that". She also confessed that she has been heartened by the outpouring support from the Moroccan American Community both online and at her book tour throughout the country.
