Jabbour Douaihy’s “American Neighborhood”
The author of “Rose Fountain Motel”, “June rain” and “Chased away” recently published his new novel “American Neighborhood”. The book tells the story of an ordinary young man recruited for the djihad in Iraq.
As always, Douaihy offers a minute description of a city he knows well, Tripoli. With tenderness, and sarcasm, he introduces the reader to the complex world of the “American neighborhood”, a poor area of Tripoli where religious extremism has drastically increased in recent years.
