Description

WINNER OF THE 2008 INTERNATIONAL IMPAC DUBLIN LITERARY PRIZE De Niro's Game plunges readers into the timely story of two young men caught in Lebanon's civil war. Bassam and George, best friends in childhood, have grown to adulthood in war-torn Beirut. Now they must choose their futures: to stay in the city and consolidate power through crime, or to go into exile abroad, alienated from the only existence they have known. Told in a distinctive, captivating voice that fuses vivid cinematic imagery and page-turning plot with the measured strength and beauty of Arabic poetry, De Niro's Game is an explosive portrait of life in a war zone, and a powerful meditation on what comes after. From the Hardcover edition.show more
