Transit Beirut is an anthology of complex urban experience that brings together memoir, short stories, journalism, photography and animation.

The view is wide: from fiction to documentary and everything in between. Beirut is undergoing an energetic process of rediscovery and reinvention by its own inhabitants, many of whom are only now returning to the city.With new and established Arab writers together for the first time, Transit Beirut oscillates between sarcastic humour and serious exploration of the tensions and conflicts in a society undergoing reconstruction.
