Synopsis: A collection of poems that features a stranger who arrives at an ancient community that is both at home and estranged on the island. It tells how the people occupy the uneasy space of all insular communities, deciding when to let the world in and when to shut it out. It describes the daily lives of the Jews of Djerba and the Muslims next door.

Book Description Northwestern University Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Stone s moving debut collection of verse is inspired by her encounter with perhaps the last cohesive, traditional Jewish community in the Middle East and North Africa. According to their story of origin, a handful of exiles arrived on the island of Djerba, Tunisia, in 586 B.C., carrying a single stone from the destroyed Temple in Jerusalem. Drawing from this cosmology, the poems follow a stranger who arrives at an ancient community that is both at home and deeply estranged on the island.Its people occupy the uneasy space of all insular communities, deciding when to let the world in and when to shut it out. The poems are about the daily lives and deeper cosmos of the Jews of Djerba as well as the Muslims next door. In her exploration, Stone sees vivid recurring images of keys, stones, homes, the laughter of girls, the eyes of men, the color blue, and the force of blood or bombs. With this journey of faith, doubt, longing, and home, Stone has brought readers a rare look into a story that resonates powerfully with questions of cultural preservation and coexistence.
