An Unnecessary Woman, Rabih Alameddine

  • Posted on: 28 December 2013
  • By: readersbooks

Rabih Alameddine, one of our favorite Bay area writers, takes us back to his native Lebanon for a moving tale of an elderly woman who, in the midst of war, keeps her soul focused and intact by translating literature.  Alameddine, whose previous novels, I, the Divine and The Hakawati have deconstructed the myths of literature and shown us its underlying humanity, has taken his quest to new heights with An Unnecessary Woman.
