Beirut Redux :
ISBN: 1599243598. OCLC Number: 654096123

Finishing Line Press,. .

"Beirut Redux" deftly explores the plight of living "Between Two Worlds." In poems that are tender and shrewd, self-aware and haunted, the poet moves between the American Midwest and Lebanon with grace and acuity. These poems, which are almost of necessity politically savvy and moving personal, will get under your skin.
