Latest Book of Lebanese Novelist Emily Nasrallah Released

by | Oct 4, 2018 | News

Documenting 56 years of creativity, “Onboz” publishing house in Beirut recently released the biography of the late Lebanese novelist Emily Nasrallah entitled “The Place,” which tells not only about her childhood in her village, Kefir, but also highlights selected parts of the history of Lebanese society and its customs and traditions.

Luxuriously printed to suit the prestige of its writer, the book comes with a 278-page guide that contains many historical information and popular terms that were widespread in the first half of the 20th century in a number of Lebanese villages, including many images and drawings, and a foldout that comprises two maps for Lebanese people’s emigration inside and outside their country.

The biography of Nasrallah is not limited to a recounting of her early starts and life among her people and her large family, but also highlights the impact of wars on the social life of Lebanese, and their celebrations of various events.  The book comprises a collection of rare photographs of members of the writer’s family and residents of Lebanese villages.
