Virtual Thalia Book Club: Rabih Alameddine, The Wrong End of the Telescope

Salon Rabih Alameddine Main Image 2 Symphony Space 2021

Description

The author of the beloved novel An Unnecessary Woman talks with award-winning journalist Mona Eltahawy about his latest work, a gripping story of an Arab American trans woman's journey among Syrian refugees. The National Book Award finalist cunningly weaves a bedazzling tapestry of both tragic and amusing portraits of indomitable spirits facing a humanitarian crisis. With a performance from the novel by Pooya Mohseni (Big Dogs).

"Rabih Alameddine is one of our most daring writers—daring not in the cheap sense of lurid or racy, but as a surgeon, a philosopher, an explorer, or a dancer." —Michael Chabon
