More

As Beirut exploded with the bombs and violence of a ruthless civil war in the '80s, a nine-year-old Salma and her family fled Lebanon to start a new life in the States. Ever since then even as she built a thriving career as a food and travel writer in New York CitySalma has had a hunch that Beirut was still her home.  She kept dreaming of moving backand finally decided to do it.

But could she resume her life in Beirut, so many years after her family moved away? Could she, or anyone for that matter, ever really go home again?

Jasmine and Fire is Salma's poignant and humorous journey of trying to resettle in Beirut and fumbling through the new realities of life in one of the world's most complex, legendary, ever-vibrant, ever- troubled cities. What's more, in a year of roiling changes around the Middle East and the rise of the Arab Spring, Salma found herself in the midst of the turmoil, experiencing it all up close.
