Thirty-nine-year-old Sirine, never married, lives with a devoted Iraqi-immigrant uncle and an adoring dog named King Babar. She works as a chef in a Lebanese restaurant, her passions aroused only by the preparation of food until an unbearably handsome Arabic literature professor starts dropping by for a little home cooking. Falling in love brings Sirene's whole heart to a boil stirring up memories of her parents and questions about her identity as an Arab American.Praised by critics from "The New Yorker" to "USA Today" for her first novel, "Arabian Jazz" ("an oracular tale that unfurls like gossamer"), Diana Abu-Jaber weaves with spellbinding magic a multidimensional love story set in the Arab-American community of Los Angeles.Written in a lush, lyrical style reminiscent of "The God of Small Things," infused with the flavors and scents of Middle Eastern food, and spiced with history and fable, "Crescent" is a sensuous love story and a gripping tale of risk and commitment.
