I Remember Beirut

By Zeina Abirached
Illustrated by Zeina Abirached

A moving, beautifully illustrated portrayal of real-world hardship, covering a series of events that will be new and shocking to many U.S. readers, all with warmth, wit, and agile line work.

A Game of Swallows author Zeina Abirached returns with a sprawling graphic novel collection devoted to memories of life after wartime in Beirut, Lebanon, and the refugee experience. The scope of this new work is broader than that of A Game of Swallows, detailing the journey of Abirached and her family across several years. Abirached's recollections cover everything from fearful events to lighthearted childhood escapades, all depicted in her utterly unique style of illustration.

  • The follow-up to a well-reviewed debut.
  • A graphic non-fiction/memoir with an international scope.
