A Short History of Lebanon, 2018
A Short History of Lebanon is a custom made bookcase that can hold all 200 SAS novels. SAS is a series of pulp erotic novels written between 1965 and 2013 by Gerard de Villiers. Besides several particularities (like all the covers featuring a woman brandishing a gun), these novels all contained actual intelligence information that de Viliers was privy to due to his work as a journalist. In a sense, these works of fiction hold within them evidence of truth. 6 of the 200 novels take place in Lebanon and were released before or right after major historical moments in the life of the country. As such these pulp novels offer an alternative way of writing the history of Lebanon that has since its independence in 1946 never had a common textbook on its own history.
