Product Overview

A powerful and groundbreaking memoir set in Ramallah during the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day War, this work captures what it is like to be a child whose world is shattered by war. Candid and courageous, it stitches together the haunting memories of the narrator?s life: the fear and confusion felt as bombs explode near her home and she is separated from her family, the harshness of life as a Palestinian refugee, and her unexpected joy when she discovers the first letter of the Arabic alphabet. As language becomes her refuge, she begins to piece together the fragments of her splintered world.

Una biograf?a conmovedora y vanguardista ambientado en Ramala a finales de la Guerra de los Seis D?as, este relato captura lo que es ser una ni?a cuyo mundo est? trastornado por la guerra. Sincero y valiente, re?ne las memorias evocadoras de la juventud de la narradora: el temor y la confusi?n que sent?a cuando caen bombas cerca de su casa y ella es separada de su familia, la dureza de la vida como una refugiada palestina y su gozo imprevisible al descubrir la primera letra del alfabeto ?rabe. A la medida que el lenguaje se convierte en su refugio, ella comienza a construir pieza por pieza su mundo astillado.
