Product Description A diary of the 2006 war in Lebanon told in drawings, comics and prose.Beirut Won?t Cry shows us how an artist views the world and everything in it ? his relationships, his family, and his creative pursuits ? as it violently crumbles around him. Both historically vital and hilarious,Beirut Won?t Cry introduces Mazen Kerbaj?s unique voice and urgent pen to an American audience for the very first time, teaching readers how to carry on and resist in times of war and oppression. Review "Kerbaj?s drawings evoke the soundscape of a Beirut under siege. The emotional, sometimes satirical drawings take the author?s anxieties, hopes, drunkenness, anger, playfulness, exhaustion, and hyper-caffeination and transmute them into human and humanesque figures." ?Bookwitty"A seminal visual diary of the summer 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon." ?The Sounder"Throughout the book, each of Kerbaj's single-panel drawings bristles with angry, anxious, and loud creativity." ?Qantara"Kerbaj?s cartoons convey the complex mixture of emotions he experienced during the war. In stark black-and-white drawings, he carries his audience on his journey from despair to anger to apathy and back again?along with brief but happy respites to visit his son and ex-wife in the mountains beyond Beirut." ?World Literature Today About the Author Mazen Kerbaj is a Lebanese jazz and free improvisation trumpeter and comic book artist. Kerbaj grew up in Beirut during the Lebanese Civil War, and began playing free jazz in local clubs following the reestablishment of cultural life in the 1990s.
