Life As A Leb-neh Lover: The Identity Crisis of A Maybe Lebanese – Turning Point Books (2011)
Finalist in two categories of the International Book Awards 2011

By Kathy Shalhoub
Life as Leb-neh Lover was originally a series of blog posts documenting the author’s adventures across the world. Shalhoub’s book is full of anecdotes describing a common Lebanese experience: the longing to live abroad, the unexpected pining for a Lebanese community in a foreign country, the culture shock upon return to the homeland, and the importance of being able to share one’s culture and language with a significant other.
Stylistically, Life as a Leb-neh Lover draws on Lebanese colloquial dialect and is made up of a series of short stories that narrate a longer developmental arc. This adds a personal touch to the book and engages the Lebanese reader, evoking genuine amusement or an unconscious nod at the events at hand.
