Jasmine and Fire: A Bittersweet Year in Beirut by Salma Abdelnour

As Beirut exploded with the bombs and violence of a ruthless civil war in the ’80s, a nine-year-old Salma Abdelnour and her family fled Lebanon to start a new life in the States. Ever since then- even as she built a thriving career as a food and travel writer in New York City-Salma has had a hunch that Beirut was still her home. She kept dreaming of moving back-and finally decided to do it.<br /> <br /> But could she resume her life in Beirut, so many years after her family moved away? Could she, or anyone for that matter, ever really go home again?<br /> <br /> <i>Jasmine and Fire</i>is Salma’s poignant and humorous journey of try-ing to resettle in Beirut and fumbling through the new realities of life in one of the world’s most complex, legendary, ever-vibrant, ever- troubled cities. What’s more, in a year of roiling changes around the Middle East and the rise of the Arab Spring, Salma found herself in the midst of the turmoil, experiencing it all up close.<br /> <br /> As she comes to grips with all the changes in her life-a love left behind in New York and new relationships blossoming in Beirut-Salma takes comfort in some of Lebanon’s enduring traditions, particularly its extraordinary food culture. Through the sights, sounds, and flavors of a city full of beauty, tragedy, despair, and hope, Salma slowly begins to reconnect with the place she’s longed for her entire life.
