Qissat; Short Stories by Palestinian Women

by Jo Glanville (Ed) - £9.99  Telegram (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846590122 | ISBN 10: 1846590124

These fascinating and diverse stories reflect the everyday concerns of Palestinians living under occupation. Writers who were children during the first intifada appear alongside those who remember the outbreak of the Lebanese civil war. They offer compassionate, often critical, insight into their society in times of hardship and turmoil, drawing upon the warmth of human relations and the hope that better times will come.
 
It's a rare showcase of Palestinian women writers across the generations. Some of the stories appear in English for the first time, including 'Dust' by award-winning young novelist Adania Shibli. Contributors include authors from Gaza and Ramallah, and writers from the United States, Jordan and the Gulf.
