I watched an interview with Lebanese novelist, Rashid Ad-Da`if. What an unassuming and kind man. I was so impressed with his personality: very atypical of Lebanese intellectuals. Note to self: read his books NOW. I did not know that he was a member of the Lebanese Communist Party for 20 years. (For readers: many of his books are translated into English, French, German and other languages).
