THE LIBYAN is unforgettable storytelling, told with raw honesty and an eye for detail. This stunning memoir sweeps four continents and several decades, from colonial Singapore through Europe and the United States, to Libya. A poignant saga of historical and cultural wealth, it transports the reader on an exciting journey of passion, terror and betrayal, chronicling a slice of Libya during the early years of Gaddafi's dictatorship.

RIP MOFTAH ABUZID and NASEEM KARNAFA
Two brave journalists were murdered in Libya this past week...
When a journalist is silenced by assassins, it is a crime against freedom of speech and humanity. It is deplorable and cowardly, and a personal violation to anyone who believes in the international rights of journalists to report.
These acts of terror cannot and must not continue in Libya. Regardless of what and if he has any intentions later, at least one man, Heftar, has the guts now to do something about fighting these murderers.
