Our Man in Beirut is the debut book by British-Lebanese author and publisher Nasri Atallah. It is an anthology of essays collected from his widely read blog that ran from 2009 to 2012,[1] that deal with the subject of dual identity, and settling back into your ethnic home culture.[2] Through humor, the book tackles Lebanese society's challenging topics, such as sexuality,[3] racism, post-traumatic stress, superficiality, destruction of heritage.[4] Atallah found his publisher and got his first book signing at Waterstones in London through posts on his social media accounts.[5]
