Counter
Poetry. Middle East Studies. Translated from the French by Cullen Goldblatt. The violence of war is rendered immediate and vividly personal in this powerful book by one of North Africa's premier writers and intellectuals. The human devastation wrought upon Iraqis in the Gulf War and upon Palestinian refugees in Lebanon and the Occupied Territories is captured in a quietly unrelenting, essential act of remembering that balances lyricism with horror.
