About the Author
Vénus Khoury-Ghata is a Lebanese poet and novelist, the author of the poetry collection She Says and the novel A House at the Edge of Tears (both translated by Marilyn Hacker). She has been a resident of France since 1973. Marilyn Hacker is a National Book Award-winning poet and the translator from French of several contemporary poets. She lives in Paris and New York, where she is a professor of English and Creative Writing at City College.
"Hacker opens for English-language readers a veritable 'suitcase filled with alphabets'--the perfectly blended French and Arabic imagination of Lebanese native and French emigrée writer Vénus Khoury-Ghata, who evokes in sinuous lines and multivalent imagery the richness of her experiences of a multi-ethnic traditional culture." --The Women's Review of Books on She Says
