Synopsis

“I’ve rarely been so moved by a voice as much as I was when I first discovered Rewa’s writings. She reminded me of the reason why I started writing in the first place: to try and give others that thrill, those shivers that I got from reading her. She has the gift of saying exactly what is on your mind but couldn’t put into words. She has the gift of defying language and taming it until it becomes a docile lion lying at her feet. She has the gift of talent. Of truth. Of humanity. Of humor. Of pain. But most of all, she has the gift of fire, that tremendous fire that burns in each and every one of her words”- writes poet, translator, journalist and women’s rights activist Joumana Haddad in her Foreword to Nietzsche’s Camel Must Die.
“I write about what I notice, experience, read, or remember, in turn, inviting you to ponder my modest observations too” – writes Rewa Zeinati in the Epilogue – “perhaps this is my attempt at slowing life down for a few minutes, considering the super bionic pace at which we’ve been pushed, with or without our consent.”
“Books are forever and Facebook is not” - xanadu* co-founder, Zena el Khalil, reminds us, explaining the collective’s decision to publish Nietzsche’s Camel Must Die – “the Middle Eastern/Arab region today is a vortex, a hurricane, a “spring” and a volcano all at once. Text messages, grand ideas, Facebook notes, events, tweets and blogs consume our daily lives, documenting the changes and chaos around us, whether intentionally or not so intentionally. This collection of Rewa Zeinati’s Facebook notes comes at a critical time in our history. But here, it’s not the politics and bantering you watch on TV. Here, it’s a moment in the life of a young, brilliant and self-liberated woman, one crucial day at a time. These are the moments, the transient fragments, the ideas that remain, and the emotions that bubble and burst into flames.”
