Arab American Writing

This series seeks to both present and celebrate Arab American literature in English in all its rich variety—fiction, drama, memoir, poetry, creative prose, and literary and cultural criticism. After more than a century of Arab immigration to the United States, Arab American literature remains largely obscure, and we hope to assist in redressing the balance. The writers we will publish will all write out of this multileveled texture of exile and diaspora—literature written in English by diaspora Arabs commands the unique perspective of an insider/outsider and commands the intensity and humanity of being nowhere and everywhere at home—Arabs influenced by America and Americans influenced by the Middle East.
