With Jerusalem as its epicentre, The Maltese Dreambook extends Gabriel Levin’s quarter-century-long ramble through the Levant, his adopted homeland. On a Greek island, in the desert wastes of southern Jordan and in Malta, whose Stone Age temples serve as a backdrop to the title poem, this collection abounds in unforeseen encounters that blur the borders between the phantasmal and the real, the modern and the archaic, the rational and the imaginary. Gabriel Levin was born in France, grew up in the United States, and has been living in Jerusalem since 1972. He has published two collections of poetry, Sleepers of Beulah (1992) and Ostraca (1999) and several translations from the Hebrew, French and Arabic, including a selection of Yehuda Halevi’s poetry, Poems from the Diwan (Anvil, 2002). He is one of the founding editors of Ibis Editions, a small press established in Jerusalem in 1997 and dedicated to the publication, in English, of literature from the Levant.

Review:

'[Levin's] synoptic vision of the two great Semitic traditions, the Jewish and the Arab, running concurrently, is also a political act of the subtlest and most humane kind... 'Ostraca' is one of the finest collections I have read in years.' - Stephen Romer, TLS"Ostraca' rakes through archaeological sites of the Mediterranean, and is astounding. Constantine Cavafy might have been proud of some of these poems' - Tom Payne, Daily Telegraph
