Summary
When Anthony Shadid--one of four New York Times reporters captured in Libya as the region erupted--was freed, he went home, not to Boston, Beirut, or Oklahoma, where he was raised by his Lebanese American family, but to an ancient estate built by his great-grandfather, a place filled with memories of a lost era when the Middle East was a world of grace, grandeur, and unexpected departures. For two years previous, Shadid had worked to reconstruct the house and restore his spirit after both had weathered war. Now the author of the award-winning Night Draws Near tells the story of the house's re-creation, revealing its mysteries and recovering the lives that have passed through it. Shadid juxtaposes past and present as he traces the house's renewal along with his family's flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America. House of Stone is an unforgettable memoir of the world's most volatile landscape and the universal yearning for home
Summary
A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who was one of the four New York Times reporters to be captured and freed in Libya traces the story of his family's effort to rebuild an ancestral home in Lebanon amid political strife and how the work enabled a greater understanding of the emotions behind Middle East turbulence
