Dr. Souheil Idriss founded Dar Al Adab for publishing and distribution in 1956. It is one of the
oldest publishing houses in the Middle East. It publishes the prestigious literary magazine AL
ADAB, a register of all modern writing: plays, poetry, literary critique, and a very open vision of
cultural exchange, as the main weapon against fanaticism and integrism. AL Adab magazine is
now totally digitalized and online. The house is a familial enterprise, independent of any political
party of governmental support. It focuses on novels, both originally written in Arabic and
international ones. From our backlist authors: Albert Camus, J.P. Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir
