Alameddine’s most recent novel is the multi-award-winning The Angel of History. Other books include I, The Divine; Koolaids; The Perv; and the international bestseller The Hakawati. His novel An Unnecessary Woman was a 2014 National Book Award finalist as well as the recipient of other major awards. Alameddine was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2002.
