Amidst the Lebanese Civil War in 1977 the author was delivered to an indigenous,bomb-damaged hotel on the Green Line, the dividing line in war-torn Beirut, where he lodged for nearly two weeks. Daily, and nightly, he traversed between West and East Beirut, met with the indomitable inhabitants of that exotic metropolis, and engaged in one incident and revelatory moment after another.
