Because of You

Bilal Al Masri is one of Lebanon's foremost living poets. The publication of Because of You will be the first time translations of his poetry are available in English.

As one of the translation team, Dr Anba Jawi, writes in the Introduction: "Bilal's poems consist of many layers... Through this he picks up all the contradictions of life, humanity, his city and his country. He digs deep into a beautiful yet harsh reality, possibly because he is living in a country torn by wars, where human life has no value, and killing is ordinary."

Because of You is expected to launch in early summer. You can order an advance copy for £9.99 from this page.
