The stories in this anthology are the work of a new generation of Palestinian writers who began to appear in the 1960s both inside Palestine and abroad. The writers of the diaspora developed many themes among them, life in the camps and the wandering Palestinian. Those living inside occupied Palestine had to contend with political repression and so generally resorted to symbolism and illusion while focussing on the inner worlds of their characters. Includes work from Liana Badr, Riyad Baidas, Emile Habibi, Farouk Wadi and their forerunners Samira Azzam and Ghassan Kanafani.
