Mahmud Shurayh versus Fathi Al-Biss

There is no author that successfully devastated and mocked another author, and with few words, like Mahmud Shurayh in his booklet, The Impairment of Memory.  He intends the book to responds to the book by Fathi Al-Biss in which he recounts his experiences in Fath in Beirut and AUB during the war.  It is a fun read.
