Book:An unnecessary woman:2015
Author: Alameddine, Rabih
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Corsair
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: New York: Grove Press, 2014 Aaliya Saleh lives alone in her Beirut apartment, surrounded by stockpiles of books. Godless, fatherless, childless and divorced, Aaliya is her family's 'unnecessary appendage'. Every year, she translates a new favourite book into Arabic, then stows it away. The 37 books that Aaliya has translated over her lifetime have never been read - by anyone. This breathtaking portrait of a reclusive woman follows Aaliya's digressive mind as it ricochets across visions of past and present Beirut.

Book:The angel of history:2017
Author: Alameddine, Rabih
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Corsair
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2016 'The Angel of History' follows Yemeni-born poet Jacob as he revisits the events of his life, from his maternal upbringing in an Egyptian whorehouse to his adolescence under the aegis of his wealthy father and his life as a gay Arab man in San Francisco at the height of AIDS. Hovered over by the presence of alluring, sassy Satan who taunts Jacob to remember his painful past and dour, frigid Death who urges him to forget and give up on life, Jacob is also attended to by 14 saints. Set in Cairo and Beirut; Sana'a, Stockholm, and San Francisco; Alameddine gives us a charged philosophical portrait of a brilliant mind in crisis.
