"Raised on Charles Baudelaire, 'A Clockwork Orange', and fine Bordeaux in 1970s Lebanon, Darina Al-Joundi was encouraged by her unconventional father to defy all taboos. As the bombs fell, she lived an adolescence of excess and transgression, defying death in nightclubs and in games of Russian roulette. The more oppressive the country became, the more drugs and anonymous sex she had, spending her nights with the same men who resented her by day. As the war died down, she begins to incur the brutal consequences of her lifestyle. In this dramatic true story, Darina Al-Joundi is defiantly passionate about living life as a liberated woman whatever the cost."--P. [4] of cover.
