Dear B.

A Graphic Homage to Beirut from Mazen Kerbaj

By Mazen Kerbaj
Translated from French by Mercedes Claire Gilliom
Mazen Kerbaj writes a graphic paean to Beirut from the perspective of an expatriate.
"For six years now we've been apart."
"And I'm still not over getting over you."
"I still miss you after all this time. It hurts so much."
"I miss the smell of you. Can you believe that?"
"I still see you in my dreams all the time."
"By the end it's nightmarish and I'm awake in a cold sweat."
"In my waking hours you haunt my mind constantly."
"You turn up everywhere."
"And I think that we'll get back together again one day."
