Fifth updated edition of a bestselling classic. This definitive biography of Kahlil Gibranauthor of The Prophettraces the phenomenon of a first-generation immigrant succeeding in twentieth-century American arts and letters. Drawing upon never-before published letters and documents, the authors describe Gibran's boyhood in Lebanon, his family's impoverished years in turn-of-the-century Boston, and his eventual friendship with that city's intellectual elite. This authorized and up-to-date biography will make obsolete all previous accounts and will become the definitive study of this extraordinary and well-loved writer. Jean and Kahlil Gibran are unusually qualified to present this story. The younger Kahlil Gibran, a noted Boston sculptor, is the poet's cousin and namesake.

She has worked closely with her husband in researching this biography.
