  • Additional Information
    • Abstract:
      Summary: Discover the city of Gaza through its short stories. Bringing together a dozen of Palestine's greatest modern prose writers, this anthology sets contemporary stories against the backdrop of one of the world's most talked-about cities, presenting them in English translation for the first time. Together, these stories will enable English-speaking readers to go beyond the global media coverage, and enter into the daily life of ordinary characters struggling to live with dignity in what is effectively the world's largest prison.
