Summary
This long-awaited re-publication of the first Arab-American novel and inspiration for Kahlil Gibran's "The Prophet", deals with Arab-American relations, religious conflict and the American immigrant experience. Told with great good humor and worldly compassion, and with illustrations by Kahlil Gibran, "The Book of Khalid" recounts the adventures of two young men, Khalid and Shakib, who leave Lebanon for the United States to seek their fortune in turn-of-thecentury New York. Together, they face all the difficulties of poor immigrants, the passage by ship, admittance through Ellis Island and the rough immigrant life. Khalid, always the dreamer, tries to participate in the political and cultural life of the teeming city, to often humiliating and comic result. Tiring of their sojourn, he convinces Shakib they should return to Lebanon. But their heads are now full of New World ideas
