Qissat: Short Stories by Palestinian Women

Publisher: Telegram

These stories reflect the everyday concerns of Palestinians living under occupation. Writers who were children during the first intifada appear alongside those who remember the outbreak of the Lebanese civil war.

Palestinian women offer compassionate, often critical insight into their society in times of hardship and turmoil, yet look to the warmth of human relations and the hope that better times will come. Contributors include authors from the occupied territories, Palestinians with Israeli citizenship and writers from the Palestinian diaspora.
