ABOUT THIS BOOK
Lebanese writer Vénus Khoury-Ghata, who lives in France and has won many of France’s major literary prizes, blends French surrealism with Arabic poetry’s communal narrative mode in three stunning poetic sequences. Here brilliantly translated from the French by poet Marilyn Hacker, the English-speaking reader has rare insight into another world, another dimension.
