Beirut Hellfire Society

Hage’s dark, episodic tale of bomb-stunned Beirut bites down unrelentingly on the less pleasant aspects of human behavior, with Pavlov observing that “humans deserved their burials, their darkness and their extinction.” Not easy reading, but the important truths, untrammeled honesty, and fire-bright defiance keep one engrossed.
