A debut novel that tells the story of Rasa, a young gay man coming of age in the Middle East Set over the course of twenty-four hours, Guapa follows Rasa, a gay man living in an unnamed Arab country, as he tries to carve out a life for himself in the midst of political and social upheaval. Rasa spends his days translating for Western journalists and pining for the nights when he can sneak his lover, Taymour, into his room. One night Rasa's grandmother — the woman who raised him — catches them in bed together. The following day Rasa is consumed by the search for his best friend Maj, a fiery activist and drag queen star of the underground bar, Guapa, who has been arrested by the police. Ashamed to go home and face his grandmother, and reeling from the potential loss of the three most important people in his life, Rasa roams the city’s slums and prisons, the lavish weddings of the country’s elite, and the bars where outcasts and intellectuals drink to a long-lost revolution. Each new encounter leads him closer to confronting his own identity, as he revisits his childhood and probes the secrets that haunt his family. As Rasa confronts the simultaneous collapse of political hope and his closest personal relationships, he is forced to discover the roots of his alienation and try to re-emerge into a society that may never accept him.

"This thesis examines the role of shame, space and language in the formation of queer identity within two novels, Guapa by Saleem Haddad (New York: Other Press, 2016) and Fi Ghurfat al-'Ankabut [In the Spider's Room] by Muhammad 'Abdul Nabi (Alexandria: Dar al 'Ayn, 2016). I begin with an overview of the theoretical material against which I read these two novels in order to situate them within a larger framework of debate surrounding the themes of shame, language, and space. I then analyze the role of language in the development of a queer identity of the two main characters of each work, Rasa and Hani, respectively. I discuss how language impacts how they come to know themselves, in particular how they grapple with the use of language that connotes queerness in their daily life. I also address the role of certain affects, which I categorize as negative queer affects, in the development of the protagonists' identities vis-à-vis the physical and social milieus that they exist in. More specifically I focus on the negative queer affect of shame in these two narratives and how it informs the characters and their development. I then put this discussion in conversation with larger frameworks for understanding "queer shame" in Arab contexts. Finally, I suggest how these works offer us as readers ways to begin thinking about how we can utilize the queer Arab affectual experiences within them to build new formations and understandings of what it can mean to be both Arab and queer.

The vibrant and beloved community of Eastvale was once an agrarian paradise. Developed initially as ranchlands, this area tucked along the Santa Ana River was transformed by industrious farmers who produced alfalfa and other crops, raised poultry and eventually thrived as dairymen. Eastvale's latest agents of change, however, weren't cattlemen or farmers but real estate agents. Indeed, land developers saw the same potential in Eastvale as the initial ranchers did. Beginning in the 1990s, developers created charming homes and planned neighborhoods for former city dwellers eager to live in Riverside County. Despite the changes, the bucolic ambiance of the bygone era remains. Authors Loren P. Meissner and Kim Jarrell Johnson recount the dynamic changes, important people and exciting events that created Eastvale.
