Beirut Won't Cry shows us how an artist views the world and everything in it -- his relationships, his family, and his creative pursuits -- as it violently crumbles around him.

display_descriptionThe prolific Kerbaj, born in 1975, has produced more than a half dozen comics and graphic novels, mostly in French. Beirut Won{u2019}t Cry marks the artist{u2019}s long-awaited arrival in English. Produced by Fantagraphics, Kerbaj{u2019}s self-designed and self-translated memoir comes with an introduction by graphic-novel luminary Joe Sacco. The book, subtitled Lebanon{u2019}s July War: A Visual Diary, chronicles Kerbaj{u2019}s experience of the 2006 Israeli bombardment of Lebanon. France's well-known comics publisher, L'Association, released the book in 2007 entitled simply Beyrouth, Juillet et Août 2006 (Beirut, July-August 2006). The text and drawings were originally posted on Kerbaj{u2019}s blog, which he maintained throughout and after the war. The book version preserves the daily-blog feel{u2014}complete with casual grammar and misspellings{u2014}and thus keeps the intensity of daily postings from under siege. Lebanon{u2019}s 34-day July War began on July 12, with a cross-border raid by Hezbollah that led to the deaths of two Israeli soldiers and the capture of three more. Israel responded with mass bombardments of Lebanese targets starting July 13, causing the destruction of buildings, roads, bridges, and the country{u2019}s main airport. During the month-plus conflict, more than a thousand Lebanese civilians were killed; forty-four Israeli civilians lost their lives.
