And So We Drive On: Short Stories
And So We Drive On | Short Stories
A mother encounters her son, arbitrarily detained during Lebanon’s civil war, revealing almost everything she wanted to know about his dreadful ordeal. A nearby shooting causes an unexpected detour, unveiling a desolate Beirut, hidden behind pitch-black nights and unfinished buildings. A soon to retire spy returns to Beirut and reestablishes contact with a former asset, but is he the one being spied on this time?
And So We Drive On is a collection of short stories inspired by Lebanon and life in Beirut, a city many of us love to hate and hate that we love. The stories are about life itself, in all its beauty and ugliness. Inspired by the experiences of some, they are ultimately the stories of all. They are a reflection that no matter what happens to us, we as human beings move on. We drive on and life, somehow, drives along with us.
