This copy of "The Teeth of the Comb and Other Stories" has been SIGNED by Osama Alomar on the half-title page! A trade paperback original from New Directions. Born in Damascus, Syria in 1968 and now living in Pittsburgh, Osama Alomar is one of the most well-respected Arabic poets writing today, and a prominent practitioner of the Arabic al-qisa al-qasira jiddan, the "very short story." Lydia Davis has said of him "In Alomar's stories, fantasy never devolves into mere whimsy. His magical imaginative creations are, every one, inspired by his deeply felt philosophical, moral, and political convictions, giving these tales a heartfelt urgency." From his appearance at the Althea Ward Clark Reading Series at Princeton University.
