9781566568630: We Are All Equally Far from Love

A new award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of Touch

A young woman, asked at work to write a letter to an older man, does as she is told. So begins an enigmatic but passionate love affair conducted entirely in letters. A love affair? Maybe. Until his letters stop coming. Or... maybe the letters do not reach their intended recipient? Only the teenage Afaf, who works at the local post office, would know. Her favorite duty is to open the mail and inform her collaborator father of the contents until she finds a mysterious set of love letters, apparently returned to their sender.
In the hands of Adania Shibli, the discovery of these letters makes for a wrenching meditation on lives lived ensnared within the dictates of others.

The work of award-winning Palestinian writer Adania Shibli has been published in literary magazines in the Middle East and Europe and in the Words Without Borders anthology The World Through the Eyes of Writers (2007). Anton Shammas calls Shibli "one of my most favorite Arab writers.... She has created for herself in recent years something that, especially for a young writer, is hard to achieve: a solid literary presence, a distinct voice, and a unique style." The following is an excerpt from chapter 1 of her novel Kulluna Ba'eed Bethat el-Miqdar 'an el Hub (2004).
