Love Song for a City of the Dead: A Review of The Mehlis Report by Rabee Jaber --- Steven Axelrod | Numéro Cinq
First published in Arabic in 2006, The Mehlis Report is the first English translation from prize-winning Arabic author, Rabee Jaber, a love song and an elegy for his beloved home city of Beirut. The book transcends politics to become a tale of loss and memory, touching without an ounce of sentiment, uplifting without a speck of hope. ---Steven Axelrod
