Read full description of the books:
A city – known for its light-heartedness, vibrancy and capacity for fun – is ripped apart by war.
A young man – full of the vim, vigour and desires of youth – refuses to be allow his spirit to be dampened . . .
November, 1980. An Egyptian writer has chosen the wrong time to come to Beirut in search of a publisher for his controversial book. Men with machine guns are on every street corner. When the writer meets an old friend from his revolutionary student days, he is introduced to two fascinating women: idealistic film-maker Antoinette and Lamia, the seductive wife of his would-be publisher. His attentions inevitably turn towards the two women, but the background rumble of strife and struggle becomes increasingly hard to ignore.
Based on the author’s real-life experience of the civil war in Lebanon, Beirut, Beirut is an exploration of how, even in the midst of chaos and violence, universals such as love, desire and yearning are still always our guiding forces.

Read information about the authorSonallah Ibrahim (Arabic: صنع الله إبراهيم) is an Egyptian novelist and short story writer.
Ibrahim is one of the "sixties Generation" who is known for his leftist and nationalist views which are expressed rather directly in his work. His novels, especially the last ones, incorporate many excerpts from newspapers, magazines and other political sources as a way to enlighten the people about a certain political or social issue. Because of his political opinions he was imprisoned in the 1960s. His imprisonment is featured in his first book, a collection of short stories called "That smell" تلك الرائح, is one of the first writings in Egyptian literature to adopt a modernist style. His latest book, Memoirs of the Oasis Prison, returns to the same theme.
In harmony with his political ideas, he recently refused to accept a prestigious literary award worth 100,000 Egyptian pounds from Egypt's ministry of culture.
