Banned from the Cairo International Book Fair (2008) and throughout the Middle East, this story of a Christian woman in 1940s Palestine alternates between dreamlike sequences and fragile states of reality. This is the 11th novel by Elias Khoury, a Lebanese author known for using fiction to "dissolve boundaries" and give a "voice to refugees."
