Touyour Ayloul - Birds of September

Nasrallah’s first published novel, in 1962, now in its twelfth edition.

This story about her native village and its people as the heroes won immediate acclaim and two outstanding prizes: the “Said Akl” prize and the “Friends of the Book” prize.

This novel describes the saga of the village people who witness their loved ones (sons, husbands…) depart for far away more promising lands and countries, just as they see in the month of September, birds, in awe of the expected cold winter, head south in search of warmer places…

Although translated into several languages, it is still to appear in English.
