Additional Book Details
How do Palestinians live, imagine and reflect on home and exile in this period of a stateless and transitory Palestine, a deeply contested and crisis-ridden national project, and a sharp escalation in Israeli state violence and accompanying Palestinian oppression? How can exile and home be written?In this volume of new writing, fifteen innovative and outstanding Palestinian writersessayists, poets, novelists, critics, artists and memoiristsrespond with their reflections, experiences, memories and polemics. What is it like, in the words of Lila Abu-Lughod, to be drafted into being Palestinian?” What happens when you take your American childrenas Sharif Elmusa doesto the refugee camp where you were raised? And how can you convince, as Suad Amiry attempts to do, a weary airport official to continue searching for a code for a country that isn’t recognized?Contributors probe the past through unconventional memories, reflecting on 1948 when it all began. But they are also deeply interested in beginnings, imagining, in the words of Mischa Hiller, a Palestine that reflects who we are now and who we hope to become.” Their contributionspoignant, humorous, intimate, reflective, intensely politicalmake for an offering that is remarkable for the candor and grace with which it explores the many individual and collective experiences of waiting, living for, and seeking Palestine.Contributors include: Lila Abu-Lughod, Susan Abulhawa, Suad Amiry, Rana Barakat, Mourid Barghouti, Beshara Doumani, Sharif S.
