A Game for Swallows: To Die, To Leave, To Return

By Zeina Abirached, Edward Gauvin (Translator)

In her graphic novel memoir, Abirached focuses on one night during the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990) during which she, her brother, and their neighbors huddle in the safest corner of their apartment sharing memories, food and comfort.
