Lebanon is one of the most liberal, progressive and gay friendly places in the Arab world. This is saying a lot for a country where homosexuality is still punishable by law.

Easter in New Orleans
Warm, wise, and magical — the latest novel by Nina George: A revelatory, urgently human story that examines what we consider serious and painful alongside light and whimsy, THE BOOK OF DREAMS is a tender meditation on memory, liminality, and empathy, asking with grace and gravitas what we will truly find meaningful in our lives once we are gone. Advance praise for The Book of Dreams:. An extraordinary novel about self-discovery and new beginnings. With all the buoyant charm that made The Little Paris Bookshop a beloved bestseller, The Little French Bistro is a tale of second chances and a delightful embrace of the joys of life in France. Set in Provence, this sensual novel deals with heartbreak, solace and the love of books. It has been translated into 37 languages. The Little Paris Bookshop has as well hit no.
