Interlink Publishes Exhaustive New Biography on Kahlil Gibran
The Gibran Chair is pleased to learn that Interlink Publishing has just published Kahlil Gibran: Beyond Borders by Jean Gibran and Kahlil G. Gibran. Interlink sent us the following abstract about this new publication:
"Kahlil Gibran: Beyond Borders reveals the rise from obscurity of a young Lebanese-American, wise beyond his years, who left his home country in near-exile at the end of the nineteenth century. Still a teenager, he emerged from poverty in a South Boston tenement to become one of the most well-known figures in literary circles of the day—a legacy that continues as his art and writing offer their deceptively simple wisdom and clarity to new generations."
"Beyond Borders is a welcome antidote to the rising anti-immigrant rhetoric of these times. Through his poetry, painting, and politics, Gibran was a champion for uncensored tolerance. His story reflects the country's ongoing struggle to give meaning to "Out of many, one."
"The footprints of this biography lie in the authors’ 1973 work Kahlil Gibran: His Life and World. Three additional decades of research and reflection by the authors and the other members of the Interlink Gibran Project have culminated in this colorful, richly illustrated new biography (with a foreword by Salma Hayek Pinault)."
"While even scholars of Gibran will find revelations here, Beyond Borders is also ideal for readers encountering him for the first time, and to students and artists facing the same problems—racism, religious intolerance, the desire to maintain authenticity amid the struggle for survival—that Gibran so gracefully addressed in his life and art."
"Beyond Borders will make obsolete all previous accounts, and is certain to become the authoritative study of this extraordinary and well-loved writer, whose politics and culture were as dear to him as his insatiable drive to create."
