Summer 2007 Reading List

Here are some books we’d like to read this fall (if only we can get them in English and Arabic!)
Stone of Laughter by Hoda Barakat (Lebanese)
A Sister to Scheherazade by Assia Djebar (Algerian)
Damascus Nights by Rafik Schami (Syrian)
Bleeding of the Stone by Ibrahim al-Koni (Libyan)
Beer in the Snooker Club by Waguih Ghali (Egyptian)

Summer is also a good time to catch up on Kutub books you might have missed with these Suggested Highlights:
The Yacoubian Building by Ala Aswani
Gate of the Sun by Elias Khoury
Season of Migration to the North by Saleh Tayeb
Leo the African by Amin Maalouf

Keep connected over the summer by reaching out to Kutub on Facebook (search for Kutub under Groups).
