Stationed in Beirut to teach the circus arts to troubled youths, a young Quebec volunteer discovers a complex city, filled with the stories that war leaves in the streets and in the eyes of the population. While rumours spreading of a conflict in Iraq a few hundred kilometres away, she imagines the overflowing of hostilities inside Lebanon and the need to escape by the mountains that border the city.

Praise for Ma guerre sera avec toi
In this literary work a sincere narrative, some surprising letters and a spontaneous, fresh, assertive poetry—yes! poetry!—all intermingle. … Every moment recorded in this puzzling travel diary overcomes the reader. “I want to read hundreds of thousands of books like that,” the narrator writes. And me, too.
Jean-François Caron, Voir
An engaging book… Read it for its rhythm, its gaze, its voice, its musicality.
