Blood Test by Abbas Beydoun
Book DescriptionWidely known throughout the Arab world as a leading poet, journalist, and literary critic, Abbas Beydoun's writing is infused with the politics and culture of his native Lebanon. In "Blood Test", his first novel, Beydoun recounts the efforts of a young man to explore his own history and identity through his encounters with the family and friends who surround him. The sudden death of his father prompts him to follow the physical and psychological traces he left behind, a journey that raises as many questions as it answers. The young man's search for a sense of belonging and rootedness leads him both forward and back as the narration travels in time and place over two continents and several generations.Max Weiss' fluid translation effortlessly conveys Beydoun's impassioned language and textured storytelling. "Blood Test" is a passport to places both real and imagined, leaving readers enriched by their travels.
