book review  


About this man called Ali: The purple life of an Arab artist. By Amal Ghandour, London: Eland. pp248. HB. 2009. £18.99




Biography of a colourful Arab poet and artist

This book is a biographical account of the life of Ali al-Jabri, a talented but equally troubled Arab artist, who was born in 1942 and was murdered in 2002. Hailing from a prominent Syrian family, young Ali grew up during a challenging time in modern Arab history. Many of the Arab states were on the verge of regaining their independence from the colonial powers, inspired by an interest in a new brand of Arab nationalism. The Second World War had also just ended and soon afterwards the Arab world was to experience yet another upheaval, namely the birth of the new State of Israel which many Arabs found difficult to accept due to political, cultural and economic reasons among other things.
