Excerpt

es,

hoc magis accepta fallit uterque fide.
non impune feres: sciet haec insana puella

et tibi non tacitis uocibus hostis erit;
nec tibi me post haec committet Cynthia nec te

quaeret; erit tanti criminis illa memor,
et te circum omnis alias irata puellas

differet: heu nullo limine carus eris.
nullas illa suis contemnet fletibus aras,

et quicumque sacer, qualis ubique, lapis.

quam sibi cum rapto cessat amore deus:
praecipue nostri. maneat sic semper, adoro,

nec quicquam ex illa quod querar inueniam!

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
