Biography

Hassan Daoud (Arabic: حسن داوود) (born 1950) is a Lebanese writer and journalist. Originally from the village of Noumairieh in southern Lebanon, he moved to Beirut as a child with his family. He studied Arabic literature at university. During the Lebanese civil war that broke out in 1975, he worked as a journalist, a profession he has pursued ever since. He served as a correspondent for al-Hayat for 11 years. At present he edits Nawafez, the cultural supplement of the Beiruti newspaper al-Mustaqbal.

Daoud has published eight novels and two volumes of short stories. As of 2011, five of the novels have been translated into English. Daoud has also been translated into French and German (by Hartmut Faehndrich). His work has appeared in Banipal magazine.
