Description

Ghada Samman's first full-length novel, originally published in Arabic in 1974, is a work prophetically depicting the social and political causes of the Lebanese civil war in 1975. The story opens in a taxi in which we meet the five central characters, each seeking something to give life meaning: security, fame, wealth, dignity, recognition, freedom from fear and tradition-sanctioned, dehumanizing practices. Once they reach the capital city of Beirut, on which they've pinned their hopes, they all discover, man and woman alike, that they are victims of forces either partially or completely beyond their control, such as political corruption, class discrimination, economic and sexual exploitation, destruction of the natural environment, and blind allegiance to tradition. Beirut '75 addresses struggles of Arab society, particularly the Lebanese, but the message is one of the universal human condition.
