Middle East Literature – Heddy Habra’s Flying Carpets

Hedy Habra’s Flying Carpets, is a collection of short stories that has just been released from March Street Press. This book offers a distinct perspective in comparison to the novels and stories that have been published lately, which mainly focus upon characters struggling with issues of identity and displacement.  Flying Carpets transports the reader to a world informed by the imagination, and magical realistic techniques. This collection of stories recreates glimpses of a bygone era pertaining to the times when Habra lived in Egypt and Lebanon. The stories are fictional and there is a progression of the magical element that becomes increasingly fantastic and universal as the stories unfold.
