Behind the Book by Yara Zgheib

Yara Zgheib is a Fulbright scholar with a Ph.D. from Centre d’Études Diplomatiques et Stratégiques in Paris. She is fluent in English, Arabic, French and Spanish. Her first novel, The Girls at 17 Swann Street, draws from her own experiences with anorexia to tell the story of a former ballerina named Anna Roux who must enter treatment. Zgheib beautifully portrays moments of both despair and hope in this raw, honest debut.
