Mai Ghoussoub of Saqi Books has died suddenly, aged just 45. More when I have it...

Mai was born in Lebanon and received her BA in French literature from the American University of Beirut. She moved to London in 1979 where she later studied sculpture at Morley College. She then worked as an artist, author and publisher with her works being exhibited in many venues in the UK.

  1. I would like to point out that Mai was born in 1952 and thus would have been 55 at her death.
    May she rest in peace.

  2. Thanks for this Michel. I still know precious little about Mai's tragic death, I'm afraid. As soon as I know more, I'll share it here.

  3. you can go to dedicate to all the tributes pouring for Mai... ad samples of her writings... etc... what a loss...
