Description

An intimate look at life in Lebanon after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, The Glass Coffeehouse explores themes of love, sacrifice, loyalty and family connection. This collection of interwoven narratives blends memoir and historical fiction to reveal the unique texture of Beirut and its citizens in the 20th century. The compelling and detailed stories revolve around the titular Glass Coffeehouse, a family-owned shop that becomes the stage for vibrant cultural debates and discussions. Changes in the power structure reverberate through the lives of the interrelated characters and provide insight on a rich culture in the throes of transition. Asma Bohsali Kombargi combines personal experience, family lore and a deep understanding of the region to provide engaging stories that offer fresh perspective on this complex and important culture.
