Beirut Noir

Creator: Iman Humaydan | Fiction - 2015-08-04

The stories here show the vast maze of the city that strictly can't be found in tourist brochures.

Publisher: Akashic Books

About this book
"Humaydan writes in her introduction to this haunting anthology that 'all of the stories are somehow framed by the Lebanese civil war, which lasted from approximately 1974 until 1990....' The crimes in this Akashic noir volume are often submerged in the greater tragedy of a beautiful city constantly torn within and without by violence." --Publishers Weekly "The stories' individual approaches to noir are as diverse as the Beirut landscape, its residents and exiles." --Middle East Monitor "In Beirut Noir, Iman Humaydan has selected a beautiful and often heartbreaking jigsaw portrait of its eponymous city....These are writers, multiple generations of Beiruti, who live and breathe the neighborhoods of their capital, and each seems to care about even the worst of it. And there is occasional humor to be found in the darkest of its spaces. Beirut, as Humaydan explains in her introduction, is a 'city that dances on its wounds.' This is a book that transcends its place in a series and stands on its own as something terrific." --World Literature Today "The Lebanese authors featured in the collection draw from a much broader palette of Beirut life, and, true to the genre, they tap into their city's dark past and uncertain present. Some stories are absurd and humorous, but almost all are haunted in some way by a nagging memory, a war, a death." --The National Translated by Michelle Hartman. Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Featuring brand-new stories by: Rawi Hage, Muhammad Abi Samra, Leila Eid, Hala Kawtharani, Marie Tawk, Bana Baydoun, Hyam Yared, Najwa Barakat, Alawiyeh Sobh, Mazen Zahreddine, Abbas Beydoun, Bachir Hilal, Zena El Khalil, Mazen Maarouf, and Tarek Abi Samra. Most of the writers in this volume are still living in Beirut, so this is an important contribution to Middle East literature--not the "outsider's perspective" that often characterizes contemporary literature set in the region. From the introduction by Iman Humaydan (translated by Michelle Hartman): "Beirut is a city of contradiction and paradox. It is an urban and rural city, one of violence and forgiveness, memory and forgetfulness. Beirut is a city of war and peace. This short story collection is a part of a vibrant, living recovery of Beirut. Beirut Noir recovers the city once again through writing, through the literary visions of its authors... "From within this collection of stories, a general attitude toward Beirut emerges: the city is viewed from a position of critique, doubt, disappointment, and despair. The stories here show the vast maze of the city that can't be found in tourist brochures or nostalgic depictions of Beirut that are completely out of touch with reality. Perhaps this goes without saying in a collection of stories titled Beirut Noir. But the 'noir' label here should be viewed from multiple angles, and it takes on many different forms in the stories. No doubt this is because it is imbricated in the distinct moments that Beirut has lived through and how they are depicted in the stories."

About this book
As one of the first women of colour to become a supermodel, Iman found that most makeup artists had little idea how to handle her unique skin tones. Neither did the available beauty products take into account the wide range of skin tones that defy categorization whether African, Latina, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern or ethnic mixes. In both her products and this book, Iman embraces skin of all tones, and teaches her readers how to work with colors and skin care regimens targeted to their exact skin tone and type. The book itself is a work of a beauty, with stunning colour photographs and images on every page, comprising five main sections: Skin Care: everything you need to know about cleansing and caring for skin of colour; Makeup: from foundation to eyes, lips and cheeks, for every tone from light to very dark; Remix: nine special looks you can create from Ghetto Fab to Screen Queen to Masai Gamine; Celebrity Sightings: 17 photo profiles including Tyra Banks, Venus Williams, Padma Lakshmi, and Eva Mendes; and Most Wanted: ten makeovers, two each for women in their teens, 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's.
