A beautifully written, never-ending tragedy set in Palestine. A place where hope has no home and the only choice is which hopeless death you claim.
Really impressive book of short stories translated from Arabic, covering so many aspects of life and relationships. It made me think of the phrase ‘life‘s rich pageant‘ and I was so impressed at how it crammed so many versions of different lives in the Middle East into one book. It absolutely ran the gamut of human emotions, sometimes funny sometimes poignant, sometimes joyful. I really recommend this
