|This is THE novel of the Lebanese Civil War. Khoury reveals its devastating effects.|
From the Publisher:
With empathy, tenderness, and pain, Elias Khoury tells the tragedy of the Lebanese Civil War through the eyes and lives of five Beirutis. Khalil Ahmed Jaber is found dead in a refuse heap, and we follow a journalist investigating the crime. We learn about Khalil from his widow, an engineer, a concierge, the garbage collector who discovered his body, and a doctor. Beirut itself is also a transfigured victim, buried in the rubble of violence, destruction, and inhumanity.
"WHITE MASKS sustains interest thanks to Khoury's eye for the personal tragedies suffered by his compatriots, and the disturbing knowledge that the effects of the war he depicts continue to be felt 20 years after its end." - Rayyan Al-Shawaf 03/31/2010
