The Journal of Illustrated Niceties
Author Samer Abou Hawach
Price $ 10 (shipping not included)

Bilingual Arabic/English | Year: 2003 | Responding to the claim that the events of September 11 were cinematic, the author offers another reading: Building on the relationship between cinema and the city, he suggests that these events are a cultural representation that oversteps the fictional and seductive world of film, implicating contemporary journalism, television, and literature as less connected to the imagination than to a chaotic, violent, and pornographic reality.

Reading, Rewriting Poe’s The Oval Portrait—In Your Dreams
Author Jalal Toufic
Price $ 5 (shipping not included)

Language: English/Arabic | Year: 2006 | Poe’s The Oval Portrait is too short—ends in an untimely manner—if we believe that the gravely wounded narrator is still alive at its end; but it is rather the opposite, not a short story, if we consider that the narrator died before its end—the story continues for too long.
