Selected Writings

by Mai Ghoussoub
£12.99   paperback  Saqi Books (2008)

Selected Writings by Mai Ghoussoub Mai Ghoussoub was a woman who lived with one foot in the East and one in the West, who embodied cosmopolitanism, and who was deeply committed to freedom of expression.
 
Drawing on her own extraordinary experiences as well as political and historical events, this collection brings together for the first time some of her 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.
 
Whether she's extolling the pleasures of cooking or defying political hypocrisy, her voice - always clear and true - restores our faith in humanity.
