"Between Beirut and the Moon" - AJ Naddaff in conversation with author, Naji Bakhti
"Between Beirut and the Moon" is the exuberant and hilarious debut from the hugely talented young Lebanese author, Naji Bakhti. A young boy comes of age within the confines of post-civil war Beirut with conflict and comedy lurking round every corner. Adam dreams of becoming an astronaut but who has ever heard of an Arab on the moon? He battles with his father, a book-hoarding journalist with a penchant for writing eulogies, his closest friend, Basil, a Druze who is said to worship goats and believe in reincarnation, and a host of other misfits and miscreants in a city attempting recover from years of political and military violence. Adam’s youth oscillates from laugh out loud escapades, to near death encounters, as he struggles to understand the turbulent and elusive city he calls home.
