This month’s selection is House of Stone: A Memoir of Home, Family and a Lost Middle East by Anthony Shadid (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Please read the book and join the discussion.
In a compelling saga of redemption and renewal, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner tells the story of rebuilding his family's ancestral home in Lebanon amid political strife, and his eventual understanding of the emotions behind the turbulence in the Middle East. "…[A]n honest-to-God, hands-down, undeniable and instant classic. " – Dave Eggers, author of Zeitoun and What Is the What. Anthony Shadid was a New York Times foreign correspondent. He died this year while reporting from Syria.
