Biography

Jabbour al-Douaihy (1949-2021) was born in Zgharta, a town of north Lebanon. He achieved his doctoral studies in literature in France, and was a professor of French literature at the Lebanese University of Tripoli.

He translated several works into Arabic, and has written a collection of short stories and two other novels.

Douaihy’s ‘June rain’ was among the six finalists for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, or Arab Man Booker Prize, held at Abu Dhabi in March 2008.
