    Works

    • Zeitoun (Arabic Edition) زيتون
    • ربما لدى البعض طرف من حكاية السوري المهاجر إلى أميركا عبدالرحمن زيتون، وفصل من دراما قصته مع إعصار كاترينا في عام ،2005 إذ رفض الرجل ترك نيو أورلينز، واختار البقاء في المدينة، يمد يد العون لعجزة محاصرين، إلا أنه لاقى جزاء ليس وفاقاً، فقد تعرض بعد ذلك لمأساة: اعتقل واتهم بالانتماء إلى تنظيم «القاعدة»، لكن ما لبث أن أفرج عنه، إلا أن حكايته شغلت المجتمع الأميركي، لاسيما بعد أن هدأت الأحوال، وتم التعافي من تداعيات «كاترينا».
    • Guardianes de la intimidad / How We Are Hungry (Spanish Edition)
    • Seres errantes y abandonados que luchan sin fortuna por encontrar su lugar en el mundo son los desco razonadores pobladores de Guardianes de la intimidad, una estupenda compilación de relatos precisos y afilados, audazmente experimentales, que expanden las fronteras del género.
    • Zeitoun (Spanish Edition)
    • Describes how Abdulrahman Zeitoun remained in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, his subsequent efforts to help other victims, his disappearance a week later, and the effect of these events on his wife Kathy and their children.
