Riassunto: Invitation to a Secret Feast is the 5th book of poetry by noted Lebanese poet Joumana Haddad, edited and with an introduction by Khaled Mattawa (who also did some of the translations). Haddads passionate, poetic voice is renowned throughout Europe and the Middle East, and Tupelo is very proud to be the first to publish her work in this country. In these gorgeous translations, her voice sings, celebrating sexuality, femininity and womanhood.
L'autore: Joumana Haddad was born in 1970 in Beirut, Lebanon, where she lives and works. A poet, journalist and translator, she is editor of the cultural pages of the Lebanese daily An-Nahar, and Administrator of the Arab Booker Prize. She has published five collections of poetry, including Daawa il Ashaa Sirri (Invitation to A Secret Dinner) and Aawdat Lilith (Liliths Return) . Her books have been translated into French, German, Spanish, and Italian. Speaking seven languages, she has translated several works of poetry and prose into and from Arabic. Her most recent is an anthology of modern Lebanese poetry translated into Spanish and published in Spain and in various Latin American countries.
