Father and Son: Selected Short Fiction
Father and Son is a collection of short stories by Hanna Ibrahim Elias and Mohammad Ali Saeid, who have managed to compel into unity the contradictions of being Israeli citizens and sons of the Palestinian people. These stories span over fifty years and so faithfully record the rise and development of the various aspects of what is called, paradoxically, Israeli-Palestinian life.
Readers of this volume will encounter serious stories strewn with light and humorous scenes, stories of intense love mixed with stories of the unusual. Story after story advocates a different choice in terms of point of view, gender, and setting. Each character is exciting, moving, and convincing. Casual readers will taste the flavor of a different culture, while scholars interested in Arabic literature will be provided with new fields for academic evaluations and critique.
