Osama Alo­mar New Direc­tions, June 1

Syr­ian writer and poet Osama Alo­mar, who lives in ex­ile in the United States, is build­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for al­le­gor­i­cal tales. Whether a few lines or a few pages long, this col­lec­tion of shorts serves up bit­ter political and moral truths. The teeth of the comb, for in­stance, stand for good deeds pun­ished. Terry Sti­astny John Mur­ray, June 1
