Fishing in Beirut is a novel I wrote between 2002 and 2006. Please see here for more details. It begins with a poem called Earth by Federico Garcia Lorca. Thanks for reading, Steven Callaghan (

We walk on
an unsilvered
a crystal surface
without clouds.
If lilies would grow
if roses would grow
if all those roots
could see the stars
and the dead not close
their eyes,
we would become like swans.

– Federico Garcia Lorca

  1. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking
    through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely
    happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
