Description

This book follows the story of one Arab family in Palestine as they experience the historic events of the 1920s-1950s. It goes on to show how the family is affected by the proximity of a nearby kibbutz (a collective Jewish community based on agriculture), by the political struggles exhibited and the pressures exerted by the region’s Arab leaders during the course of 35 years, and by the disruptive effect being a refugee had on them.

The book contains brutal murders and vivid depictions of gang rape scenes, making it controversial.
