L’exploration par Mazen Jannoun de la côte libanaise est un voyage de découvertes de ce qui est, de ce qui aurait pu être et de ce qui aurait dû être. C’est un périple sentimental brièvement interrompu par l’assaut israélien en 2006 mais aussi une expédition vers l’inconnu. Ce livre montre du doigt ce qui est séduisant et ce qui est répugnant, ce qui inspire et ce qui est banal. Du Nord au Sud, Mazen a rencontré la beauté et la dévastation, un engagement certain pour la conservation des plages et une indécente négligence.
