To Look at the Sea is to Become What One Is: The Etel Adnan Reader - 2 Volume Set

Brooklyn & Callicoon: Nightboat Books, 2014.
Paperback.

 A collection of the work of Lebanese American author and artist Etel Adnan (1925-2021). Adnan was born in Beirut and studied at the Sorbonne, Berkeley and at Harvard before teaching at Dominican College in San Rafael, California, from 1958-1972. She moved to Beirut in 1972 where she worked for two newspapers and returned to California in 1977. Her work - essays, fiction, poetry, memoir, feminist manifesto, and philosophical treatise - often challenges the conventions of genre. Among the key works reproduced in their entirety here are Sitt Marie Rose (1978); The Arab Apocalypse (1980); Journey to Mount Tamalpais (1986); and Of Cities & Women (1993).
