I Remember Beirut is a mosaic of childhood memories of the war in Beirut, Lebanon. Taxi rides to school because the school bus won’t come to your house, kerosene deliveries by donkey cart, collecting beautiful bits of shrapnel on the sidewalk: all are part of “ordinary” life in Beirut between 1975 and 1990.

The author uses crisp black-and-white images and fragmented text to describe how life persists, even in these difficult circumstances. A child remembers the end of war as a time to get a haircut, take a hot shower, get candy bars, and go downtown again to look for favorite stores that are no longer there. This graphic novel offers adults and children alike a look at life in a war zone through the eyes of a child. (Graphic Universe)
