Mina Simpson, the narrator of Rabih Alameddine’s The Wrong End of the Telescope: A Novel, is a transgender Lebanese doctor volunteering in the Moria refugee camp on Lesbos, Greece. As she deals with her own losses and displacement, Mina’s story offers a rare view into the many layers of the refugee crisis. Hala Alyan’s The Arsonists’ City is the saga of a geographically and emotionally scattered family – Syrian mother, Lebanese father, and three American children – compelled to reunite at their ancestral home in Beirut, where tensions, secrets, and ancient slights come to the fore.
