"Mustafa Murrars stories span more than fifty year period. Jamal Assadi has translated a selection of these stories to introduce this Palestinian writer to a wider public through the English language. This volume includes serious stories with light and humorous scenes, love stories intermingled with tales of the unusual, and political stories interwoven with love scenes. This book enables Murrar to tell his own stories and the stories of his peoplestories of alienation and marginalization but also of hopes and dreams--in a new magnified voice. All readers will savor the aroma of a different culture, while scholars of Arabic literature will be given the chance to tread new fields for academic assessment and critique."
