Andree and I have jointly accepted an invitation from the American University in Cairo Press to edit a volume of travel writing about the thrice-Holy City. This will be similar in format to the one I did last year about Beirut (A Beirut Anthology: Travel Writing through the Ages, American University in Cairo Press, autumn 2017). A VERY exciting project, rather daunting as so much has been written; but hey. If the AUC Press does as nice a job at producing this one as they did for Beirut (and the previous volumes about Cairo, Alexandria, and Istanbul) it should be a very pretty book, almost pocket-sized (certainly purse-sized).
STOP PRESS: just sent back the corrected first proofs, exciting!
