Little Mountain by Elias Khoury is based on the author's own experience during the Lebanese civil war. Through this book, I wanted to show the fact that war makes one lose all sense of familiarity with things. The painting of Beirut represents the happy childhood memories of Khoury that disintegrates as we read and gets replaced by the haunting memories of wartime.
