Reading lists and book reviews in Middle Eastern essay and literature

⇒Non-Fiction star
Essays, biography, and other non-fiction writing related to the Middle East

Alia Muhammad Baker - Chief Librarian of Al Basrah (Iraq) Central Library, Cultural Heroine star
Librarian Alia Muhammad Baker saved the majority of the collection of the Basra Central Library, and much of the history of Basra, from the looting and destruction of war. Her actions inspired two fabulous children´s books and earned her a place in the rich history of Iraqi libraries.

The Attack - A Novel Look at Terrorism star
Yasmina Khadra´s novel, The Attack, is a perceptive look at love, loyalty, grief, terrorism, and family.

The Janissary Tree - an Entertaining Middle Eastern Mystery star
A review of Jason Goodwin´s The Janissary Tree

International Voices: The Muslim World star[offsite link]
An excellent reading list from the Multnomah County (Portland, OR) Library consisting of novels and short stories by and about Muslims. These books mainly, but not exclusively, deal with Middle East life or emigrants from the Middle East. This is a list I use myself, and have always been happy with the books I have chosen.

Middle Eastern Literature star[offsite link]
An excellent collection of reading lists from the Salt Lake City Library System

Once There Was, Twice There Wasn't - A Review star
Anyone wanting to truly understand Turkish culture would do well to read the book, "Once There Was, Twice There Wasn't" by Michael Shelton. Knowing the stories, jokes, and tragedies of a culture is one of the keys to understanding the language and learning how to build bridges to the people.

One of the oldest Stories in the World star
One of the oldest stories in the world, Gilgamesh, was carved on clay tablets in Mesopotamia, now modern-day Iraq.
