Beirut 39 Reading

Now a book published by Bloomsbury, Beirut 39 is an anthology of 39 works by the most interesting new Arab writers under 40, winners of a literary prize created by the Wales-based Hay festival and Banipal magazine. 

"The book contains short stories, novel extracts and poems, often brimming with exuberance and sparkling with innovation."
