Beirut resident Makdisi, even when faced with the 1982 Israeli invasion and 15 years of civil war, has loyally remained. ``Beautifully crafted,'' said PW. Makdisi ``delineates the lives and emotions of those who chose to stay, emphasizing the joie de vivre of friends and acquaintances despite frequent shellings, aerial bombardments and fighting in the streets.''
