Coffeehouse Footnotes by Peter Clark

Book Details

… you cannot suffocate my tunes – for I am the lover of this land and the singer of wind and rain.

Salem Jubran

A great wave of happiness surges over me, and I realize how much I love this country, and how complete and satisfying this life is.   Agatha Christie on Syria

The Palestinian poet, Salem Jubran, and the British crime-writer, Agatha Christie, who travelled in the Middle East with her archaeologist husband, are just two of the literary and historical figures, fascinating and eccentric individuals, great people, travellers and explorers packed into Coffeehouse Footnotes. In a series of essays and reviews and with his own amusing and personal memories, Peter Clark offers a sweeping yet balanced perspective on an area of the world that has always been at the heart of international politics and inspired and influenced so many. Packed with information, ideas and anecdotes, this is a book that will enthral and delight those who are already familiar with the Middle East and be read eagerly by those who would like to know more about it.

'an absorbing record of Middle East life and very readable', John Mitchell
