I went through this directory but, to my surprise, I did not find the name "Yasin al-Jibouri" in it. This Iraqi writer, author, editor and translator has more books to his credit than those who have written this directory... If this is not a shame, I do not know what it is.

You can not write about the important true factual are elements that need to be closely developed through intense research . Not only my parents where very good friends with many of the Higher end Arab Families ,were actual mostly Royal , and this is the book that goes not only into my mother and fathers life ,but also mine as I was sent to the top boarding schools in Switzerland I was with many other Royal Arab Famalies that excepted me as there own I had a great upbringing with Rada Maryanovich and this is the reason my parents lived with Rada Maryanovich , they had their Manhattan residence that was, a Mansion, in the Sky, and a 20 room apartment in the Luxuary Manhattan Skyline the exact building was 1155, Park ave was my mother's ,first residence.
Only 3 month's out of the year ,she had the Ambassadors company ,with one child that ,Branka was resposible for, was a good solid experience for a beautiful 19 ,year old model artist in NYC .
