"Sarah is on the brink of adulthood in her village in the mountains of Lebanon in the 1930s, a world hesitating on the verge of change. Her father the shaykh is uninterested in anything but the silkworms he's always raised; her conservative aunt worries only about the family's reputation, fearing that Sarah will take after her mother, who ran away twelve years ago and has been unheard of since. Sarah's brother dreams of going abroad, but each year finds himself still trapped in the family business. Around her the village - Druze and Christian, Lebanese and English - grows poorer, its traditions no longer able to sustain it. Sarah's hopes for the future have come to rely either on marriage, or finding the mother she can't remember." "In Younes's textured, lyrical prose, the story of one young woman's coming of age becomes a meditation on a nation's hardship, on home and freedom, hope and loss. Younes brings to intense life this lost world and the women at its center, whose lives have disappeared from history, from their own grasp."--Jacket
B as in Beirut by Īmān Ḥumaydān( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four interlocking narratives that make up this novel belong to four women who live in the same building in Beirut during the Lebanese civil war. There is Lilian with her two children, desperate to emigrate, with or without her husband. Warda cannot recover from the loss of her daughter, and finds that no matter how many times she goes over it, the story of her life no longer makes sense. Camilia has returned to Beirut to make a film about her former homeland, but becomes irrevocably caught up in its violence. Maha remains in the building even as her family, her neighbors, her city, and her country fracture around her. As the war continues each day, unending, divisions between past and present begin to break down." "Younes's intimate, haunting attention to these women's lives creates a portrait not only of her characters but of the nature of war. Here, loss is the city's most constant resident, and its story will inevitably overcome all the rest."--Jacket

Cinquante grammes de paradis : roman by Īmān Ḥumaydān( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Revenue à Beyrouth en 1994, Maya découvre, au cours du tournage d'un documentaire sur la reconstruction du centre-ville, une sacoche abandonnée dans un immeuble en ruine. À l'intérieur, parmi des photos et documents d'avant la guerre civile, le journal posthume d'une certaine Noura, journaliste syrienne en exil, et les lettres d'Istanbul de son amant Kamal. Dès lors, elle se sent investie d'un devoir impérieux : reconstituer l'histoire tragique de ce couple. Son enquête va exhumer de lourds secrets, grâce à Sabah, l'amie de la disparue, mais surtout faire basculer le fragile équilibre de la vie de Maya. Avec cette fresque vibrante, Imane Humaydane révèle l'intrication des oppressions patriarcales, confessionnelles et politiques dans ce Moyen-Orient de la fin du XXe siècle. Un puissant désir d'émancipation féminine s'y déploie envers et contre toutes les formes de barbarie."

Dernière destination de la collection « Asphalte Noir », Beyrouth Noir rassemble des nouvelles inédites de quinze auteurs beyrouthins, avec la guerre civile (1974-1990) pour toile de fond. Une véritable réappropriation par l'écriture de la capitale libanaise.La collection « Asphalte Noir » fait sa première incursion au Proche-Orient avec sa nouvelle destination : Beyrouth Noir. Imane Humaydane a rassemblé autour d’elle quinze écrivains pour mettre en scène la capitale libanaise, avec la guerre civile (1974-1990) pour toile de fond. « Cette anthologie prend part à un mouvement général, vibrant et vivant, de reconquête : elle se réapproprie la ville grâce à l’écriture. »Le genre noir est ici compris au sens le plus large du terme. Les regards portés sur la ville par les quinze auteurs du recueil sont désabusés, pleins d’amour et de rejet, de frustration et de fascination, mais tous battent en brèche les clichés sur cette ville souvent résumée à sa somme de contradictions.Avec des textes de : Muhammad Abi Samra, Tarek Abi Samra, Najwa Barakat, Abbas Beydoun, Bana Beydoun, Leila Eid, Rawi Hage, Hyam Hared, Bachir Hilal, Hala Kawtharani, Zena El Khalil, Mazen Maarouf, Alawiya Sobh, Marie Tawk, The Amazin’ Sardine
