"Sitt Marie Rose" is the story of a young teacher who is abducted and then executed by Christian militiamen during the Lebanese Civil War. Based on a true story, this powerful and disturbing novel is now considered as one of the most important works of fiction to emerge from this tragic period in Lebanon. Highly innovative, and even iconoclastic, "Sitt Marie Rose" explores the role that sexual repression and 'tribalism' played in creating one of the most horrific conflicts in modern Arab history.

From the Publisher:

This extraordinary novel about the Civil War in Lebanon won the France-Pays Arabes award in Paris and has been translated into seven languages. Sitt Marie-Rose is part of Comparative Literature, Women's Studies, and Middle East Studies curricula in countless universities and colleges in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East.

About the Author:

Poet, painter, author Etel Adnan has written some of the definitive texts on post-coloniality, culture, and gender. Born in 1925 in Lebanon, which was then under French control, Adnan was educated at the Sorbonne, then at University of California, Berkeley, and Harvard. As a witness to civil war, aggression, and atrocities in her own country, Adnan's works, most notably "Sitt Marie Rose," "The Arab Apocalypse," and "There," make a daring and inventive contribution to the literature of protest and resistance.

Translated into eight languages, and taught in Universities around the world, Adnan's work as both writer and painter has earned international acclaim. Adnan lives in both Northern California and in Paris.
