Here we have a collection of fictional tales written from the perspective of a Syrian-American. The stories put a human edge to the immigrant's struggles in a new country and deals with the Arab heritage left behind. The resulting stories show the lives these immigrants and children of immigrants as they struggle to adjust in a new country. The situations in which they find themselves are sometimes sad, sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, but always relevant.
