Literary Writings - Lebanon
Drawing on her own extraordinary experiences as well as on political and historical events, this collection brings together for the first time some of Mai Ghoussoub's finest writings - on war, politics, sexism, martyrdom, the arts, censorship, exile and the city. Essays sit alongside short stories, poetry, plays and letters, all enlivened with her signature humour and enduring compassion.
