Our Man in Beirut Paperback Jan 12 2011 By Nasri Atallah
Imagine moving to Beirut after 22 years in London. You look Lebanese, but you feel British. You have a beard, but you love standing in orderly queues. Part of you likes a bit of Mediterranean wheeling and dealing, but you’re also slightly OCD in a city that is anything but. Our Man in Beirutbrings together a selection of posts from Nasri Atallah’s wildly successful blog offset with the author’s thoughts and photos from his returning ex-pat’s perspective. It is a memorable and funny read -- a truly authentic voice that’s larger than life.
