Kamal Al-Solaylee’s Intolerable: a memoir of extremes.
Nominated for the 2013 Toronto Book Award, Intolerable: a memoir of extremes is part memoir of an Arab family trapped in the turmoil of Middle Eastern politics, part coming-out narrative and part cultural analysis. Intolerable covers the last 50 years and recounts the story of Al-Solaylee’s family as they moved from Aden, to Beirut, to Cairo and then to Sana’a, Yemen.
