Amman, Jordan Author Publishes New Book

August 26, 2012   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) The Truth Be Told, a new book by Yasmeen Omar Muftah Alabbar, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

The beauty of poetry as a form of expression is that within the breadth of a few distilled lines, the author can transfer the rich imagery within his or her own mind to a carefully desired effect across the mind of the reader-or, as is sometimes the case-the listener.

The Truth Be Told, by Yasmeen Omar Muftah Alabbar, read in the traditional print form, of course achieves the same result while traversing a long list of subjects, from the frailty of human emotions, the subtle interplays of living, to the political chaos of a Middle East in varying degrees of transition.

The Truth Be Told is not just about love and all the things about living that we've come to cherish; it's also about the failings that make us as human as we are.
