Dear Mr Kawabata by Rashīd Ḍaʻīf( Book )
27 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 345 libraries worldwide
"As a young Lebanese man lies dying in a makeshift mortuary in Beirut during the last days of the civil war in 1991, thoughts of his past life flood through his mind. In his disordered imagination, he writes to the Japanese novelist Yasunari Kawabata who had killed himself in 1972, and argues with him about dying, free will and the value of memory which is for him 'a support untouched by doubt'." "Reaching back to his childhood in the mountains of Northern Lebanon, he recalls the time when Gagarin first orbited the earth and he had to insist to his mother that the world was round, not flat. His move to university in Beirut, the death of his father and his entanglement in the violent politics of the 1970s lead to fierce commitment and an eventual loss of faith."--Jacket

No matter how hard Rachid tries to recreate himself, to become educated and worldly-to "learn English"--It is impossible for this hip Beiruti with his cell phone and high-speed internet to sever the connection to his past in the Lebanese village of Zgharta, known for its "tough guys" and old-fashioned clan mentality. When the news of his father's murder, a case of blood revenge, reaches him by chance through a newspaper report, it drags him inescapably back into the world of his past. Suddenly he is plunged once again into the endless questions that plagued his childhood

Who's afraid of Meryl Streep? by Rashīd Ḍaʻīf( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
Rashid al-Daif's provocative novel Who's Afraid of Meryl Streep? takes an intimate look at the life of a recently married Lebanese man. Rashoud and his wife struggle as they work to negotiate not only their personal differences but also rapidly changing attitudes toward sex and marriage in Lebanese culture. As their fragile bond disintegrates, Rashoud finds television playing a more prominent role in his life; his wife uses the presence of a television at her parents' house as an excuse to spend time away from her new home. Rashoud purchases a television in the hopes of luring his wife back home, but in a pivotal scene, he instead finds himself alone watching Kramer vs. Kramer. Without the aid of subtitles, he struggles to make sense of the film, projecting his wife's behavior onto the character played by Meryl Streep, who captivates him but also frightens him in what he sees as an effort to take women's liberation too far. Who's Afraid of Meryl Streep? offers a glimpse at evolving attitudes toward virginity, premarital sex, and abortion in Lebanon and addresses more universal concerns such as the role of love and lust in marriage. The novel has found wide success in Arabic and several European languages and has also been dramatized in both Arabic and French

Die Verschwulung der Welt : Rede gegen Rede : Beirut-Berlin by Joachim Helfer( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 62 libraries worldwide
Zwei Männer auf einem Diwan: Das Austauschprogramm >>West-östlicher Diwan<< bringt Schriftsteller aus Deutschland und der arabischen Welt paarweise zusammen, um durch ihr Kennenlernen dem vielbeschworenen Kampf der Kulturen< entgegenzuwirken. Joachim Helfer und Rashid al-Daif haben die Aufforderung zum Gespräch ernstgenommen. So entstand ein verblüffendes Buch: Der libanesische Autor schreibt ein Protokoll, dessen Gegenstand sein deutscher Kollege ist und zwar als Privatperson. Er kommentiert dessen gleichgeschlechtliche Lebensweise, beschreibt Ansichten zu Sexualität, Liebe und Moral, die ihm fremd sind. Der deutsche Autor reagiert darauf mit radikaler Offenheit, schildert die Begegnung aus seiner Sicht und zeigt am Text des libanesischen Kollegen dessen eigene, zwischen Tradition und Moderne hin und her gerissenen Vorstellungen von Männer- und Frauenrollen auf. Am Ende macht der auf beiden Seiten mit dem Mut zur Selbstentblößung geführte Dialog erschreckend deutlich, wie sehr im Verhältnis zwischen Orient und Okzident das Private das Politische ist
