Published shortly after his untimely passing, House of Stone follows well-known journalist Shadid’s efforts to reconstruct an estate built by his great-grandfather and destroyed during Israel’s incursion into Lebanon in 2006. Shadid creates a mosaic of past and present, tracing the house’s renewal alongside his family’s flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America. In the process, Shadid memorializes a lost world, documents the shifting Middle East, and provides profound insights into this volatile landscape.
