My book Forget the Words is receiving significant attention. Mom had her own beautiful review: 

Forget the words
ليس كتاب حبيبتي شهد فرحة العمر بل هو وطن
شعرت وانا اشرب من حبيبات أمطار كلماته التي قيلت والتي لم تقال 
كأن موسم الشتاء الحنون قد حضر وبسخائه حاملاً بشرى ولادة وطن جديد بقلب والدتك وفرحه لا تقل عن فرحتي بميلادك
حبيبتي بنتي “كتابك احتل قلبي دون ان يدقّ الأبواب فخورة بأصابع كانت صغيره وراقبتها حتى كبرت وازدهرت وأينعت لأراها شموعاً مضيئه

I recently had the honor of reviewing Hannah’s work:

 My book Forget the Words is selling fast! We launched in Bahrain, copies are vanishing! This is before we even launch in Kuwait. The book fair is on November 17th, I will be attending for the book signing. For now, if you’d like to get your copy (both inside and outside Kuwait) the number is : 00965 99119934  directly from the publishing house Dar Kalemat. Straight out of the oven! 


Forget The Words 

Finally my second book is out! It will be available via Direct order, through the phone, Dar Kalemat. They deliver to all Gulf regions. 

The book signing will take place in Mishref Fairgrounds, November 17th. The first book fair is in Sharjah on November 2nd. 

Here is a glimpse: 



“The things we want are transformative, and we don’t know or only think we know what is on the other side of that transformation,” Rebecca Solnit wrote in her beautiful inquiry into how we find ourselves by getting lost. But the truth is that most of the time we don’t know or only think we know what is on this side of any transformative experience — we live much of our lives opaque to ourselves, lost within our own psyches, confused and conflicted about what we really want.” 

This is an excellent and thought provoking read on the impossibility of two people reconnecting, love, confusion, and the unlikeliness of it all. Check it out:
