9781742199009: Haifa Fragments

As a designer of jewelry, Maisoon wants an ordinary extraordinary life, which isn’t easy for a tradition-defying activist and Palestinian citizen of Israel who refuses to be crushed by the feeling that she is an unwelcome guest in the land of her ancestors. She volunteers for the Machsom Watch, an organization that helps children in the Occupied Territories cross the border to receive medical care. Frustrated by her boyfriend Ziyad and her father, who both want her to get on with life and forget those in the Occupied Territories, she lashes out only to discover her father isn’t the man she thought he was. Raised a Christian, in a relationship with a Muslim man and enamored with a Palestinian woman from the Occupied Territories, Maisoon must decide her own path.

About the Author:

khulud khamis is a Palestinian feminist writer of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, whose work deals with political and social issues such as identity, belonging, racism and discrimination, art as political resistance, and issues affecting women and the LGBTQI community.

Review:

A beautiful story of intertwined cultures and relationships with the rhythm of hope, mixed with the creative drive for life, justice, meaning and love. History comes to life with the exploration of the past trying to understand the now. " Alex Nissen, " feminist peace activist"

" khulud khamis "has the rare gift of speaking directly to a reader s soul: her language is lyrical and wise. Like "Woman Hollering Creek, " the classic story by "Sandra Cisneros," this radiant novel shows just what can happen when women challenge the limits of their world. " Sharon Olinka, "author, "The Good City""

" khulud" gives us a chance to live beyond ourselves, to say exiled words so our very lips form new possibilities . . . A most important work, one that will change every reader. " Joan Nestle, "author, "A Restricted Country""
