About the book
Award-winning photographer Rania Matar’s A Girl and Her Room reveals the lives of girls from two disparate worlds – The U.S. and Lebanon. Set in the girls’ bedrooms – which range from spartan cleanliness to chaotic disarray – these portraits offer an insider’s perspective of not just who these young women are, but the physical spaces that prove to be extensions of their identities.
A Girl and Her Room is RANIA MATAR’s second book. Her first book, Ordinary Lives, was published in 2009.
SUSAN MINOT’s first novel, Monkeys, was published in a dozen countries and received the Prix Femina Étranger in France. She is the author of Rapture, Lust & Other Stories, Folly, Evening, and Poems 4 A.M., and wrote the screenplay for Bernardo Bertolucci’s Stealing Beauty.
ANNE TUCKER is the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, a department she founded in 1976, and has authored a number of books.
