Eine kraftvoll geschriebene Geschichte, wie Der Drachenläufer für Palästina. Eine Familie wird aus ihrem Dorf vertrieben und muss in einem Flüchtlingslager leben. Ein halbes Jahrhundert voller Angst folgt, aber die Abulhejos geben die Hoffnung nie auf, in ihre verlorene Heimat zurückkehren zu können. Zutiefst menschlich ändert dieser Roman den Blick auf einen beherrschenden Konflikt unserer Zeit.
Über den Autor
Susan Abulhawa was born to refugees of the Six Day War of 1967, and moved to the United States as a teenager. In 2001, she founded Playgrounds for Palestine, Inc., to build playgrounds for children in occupied territories. A biologist, mother, and activist, Susan has contributed essays to the New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, and Philadelphia Inquirer, among other publications. Mornings in Jenin, her first novel, was published in a hardcover edition by Journey Publications in 2006 under the title The Scar of David, but fell out of print. It will now be widely available for the first time, in a fully revised edition. Her Web site is www.scarofdavid.com.
Set against one of the twentieth century's most intractable political conflicts, MORNINGS IN JENIN is a deeply human novel - a novel of history, identity, friendship, love, terrorism, surrender, courage, and hope. Its power forces us to take a fresh look at one of the defining conflicts of our lifetimes. A bestseller all over the world, it is a heart-wrenching, powerfully written novel that could do for Palestine what The Kite Runner did for Afghanistan.
