A new novel from award-winning Lebanese writer Iman Humaydan. Did I live many lives or only one life enough for many women? asks Miriyam in Other Lives. This third novel by Lebanese writer, Iman Humaydan, starkly and poignantly demonstrates how war, violence and dislocation have an impact not only on the lives of people who live through them but what life itself means, particularly for women. In Other Lives, Miriyams travels take her from her Shouf mountain village to Beirut, Melbourne and Paradise, Australia to Nairobi, Mombasa and Cape Town. Unwilling to be tied down by geography, language or men, Miriyam forges a path through the world that is at once hers uniquely and also deeply informed by her lifes experiences. Again and again, she is drawn back to the Lebanon of her birth and childhood, only to find it no longer there. She is forced to confront the ghosts of the civil warher dead brother, her disappeared lover, and the life that she left behind when she immigrated to Australia. Humaydan deftly explores one womans negotiation of love and war, intimacy and loss, migration and home in a way that speaks beyond individual but to a collective experience.
