Marius Kociejowski follows up his now classic The Street Philosopher and the Holy Fool with The Pigeon Wars of Damascus. A metaphysical journalist in search of echoes rather than analogies, hints as opposed to verities, Kociejowski discovers once again at the periphery of Damascene society--for the outcast is often made of the very thing that rejects him--a way to understand the challenges and changes refashioning post-9/11 Syria and the Middle East, reminding us once again of the deeper purpose of travel: to absorb and understand the spirit of a place, and to return changed.

Marius Kociejowski: Marius Kociejowski was born and raised in Canada, and now lives in England. A poet, essayist and travel writer, he is the award-winning author of four collections of poetry, The Street Philosopher and the Holy Fool, and is the editor of Syria Through Writers' Eyes. He lives and works as a bookseller in London.
