Journal of an Ordinary Grief

Mahmoud Darwish

Journal of an Ordinary Grief by Mahmoud Darwish"Darwish is to be read with urgency, in the night, when nothing else moves but his lines."
-The Village Voice

"Every beautiful poem is an act of resistance," asserts Darwish. Both voice of the Palestinian people and one of the most transcendent poets of his generation, Mahmoud Darwish also wrote several remarkable volumes of autobiographical essays over the course of his life. First published in Beirut in 1973, these probing essays ask vital questions about the existentially complex realities the Palestinians in Israel face and the ambiguity of Darwish's own identity as an Israeli Palestinian....

The Waitress Was New

Dominique Fabre

The Waitress Was New by Dominique FabrePierre is a veteran bartender in a café on the outskirts of Paris. When the café goes under, he is at a loss for what to do next: at 56 years old, he's too young for retirement and too weary to move blithely on to another job. Pierre gains our trust immediately through his perceptive eye and understated wit. As we follow his inner monologue over the course of three days, his sensitivity and profound solitude are revealed. While a quiet book, the themes it brings into play are immense: the terror of aging, the need for human contact (however superficial), and the precarious dependence of...

Book of My Mother

Albert Cohen

Book of My Mother by Albert Cohen

"One of the most beautiful love stories ever written."—Paris Match

Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother's death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for La France libre, which later grew into Book of My Mother. Achingly honest, intimate, moving, it is a tribute to all mothers.

Albert Cohen (1895–1981) is the author of Solal (1930); Mangeclous (1938); Belle du Seigneur (1968), which was awarded the French Academy's Grand Prix du Roman; and Les Valereux (1969).
