"Home, family, nation, self we often take them to be fixed in our lives. But if dislocation is in your blood and the soil of your homeland, if each generation of your family lives somewhere different to the previous one, and if your countrys past and present pose a constant challenge to the very idea of a fixed address then eventually you must leave to remain. Leave to Remain: Chronicles of a Foreign Arab is an evocative memoir about growing up in a middle-class Muslim family in civil-war Beirut and then the authors own journey from Beirut to Sydney, where he now lives"--Provided by publisher.
