Description
During the Lebanese civil war in the 1980s, a young man is arrested and charged with rape. Repeatedly interrogated and tortured, Yalo is forced—like Scheherazade—to tell a different story each day to stay alive. As he battles to understand his past and the forces that have shaped him, he comes to discover his own voice and the true Yalo begins to emerge. Elias Khoury, a professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic studies and the editor in chief of the literary supplement of Beirut's An-Nahar newspaper, weaves this searing look at truth and memory, love and transcendence.

"In Lebanon, there is passion and there is blood. Elias Khoury's new novel, Yalo, heavy with both, is a dizzying journey into the extremes of human experience—into the intense sensuality and stomach-turning violence."—NYTBR
