Told with great good humour and worldly compassion The Book of Khalid recounts the adventures of two young men, Khalid and Shakib, who leave Lebanon for the United States to seek their fortune in turn-of-the century New York. Together, they face all the difficulties of poor immigrants - the passage by ship, admittance through Ellis Island and the rough immigrant life. Playing with classical Arabic literary forms, as well as Western literary conventions, this is a unique contribution to world literature.
