National Book Award finalist Rabih Alameddine’s “beautiful and absorbing” (New York Times) novel An Unnecessary Woman garnered universal acclaim following his best-selling exuberant epic The Hakawati, an Arabian Nights for this century. In his newest novel, The Angel of History, an acerbic and intelligent Yemeni-born poet narrates a tumultuous life story over the course of one night in a psychiatric clinic’s waiting room. Alameddine is also the author of Koolaids; I, the Divine; and The Perv. He divides his time between San Francisco and Beirut.
Coffee and tea served. Book signing to follow.
