In 2009-2010, I spent a year with my family in Tyr, Lebanon, near the border with Israel. Since my wife had taken a job working for an NGO and my son was attending school, I was assigned the role of “house husband” for the family. This gave me ample time for lengthy walks through the city, and I was able to meet shopkeepers, gypsies, suspected Hizbullah agents, and expatriates from the international community as I went along. The details of Lebanese life in Tyr were recorded in my daily journal entries, which became the basis for A Year in Tyr.
