Leaving Beirut

Leaving Beirut

Author : Mai Ghoussoub

A twelve-year-old girl writes an essay that extols revenge to impress her teacher, and is surprised to receive criticism rather than praise. ‘Revenge’, Mrs Nomy insists, is ‘the most cowardly’ human behaviour.

Years later, having fled Beirut, she reflects upon the devastating role revenge has played in her country. Might she have found it so easy to forgive if she had stayed? Or might she, too, have contemplated retribution?

A compelling and humane book, which abounds in courage and compassion.
