In "Torn Body, One Soul," four Palestinian writers-sons and
daughters of a Palestinian people torn apart-tell their own tales
of their predicament, estrangement, and marginalization, their
expectations and visions in a new, magnified voice, first to their
people, then to their nation, and to a wider English-speaking
The seventh book in a series of volumes on Palestinian authors,
this collection of short stories, translated and edited by Jamal
Assadi, contains works of writers hailing from different regions in
Palestine and abroad. Through their stories, authors Gharib
Asqalani, Huzama Habayeb, Akram Haniyya, and Mahmoud Shukair depict
a faithful picture of the various aspects of life in both Palestine
and the Diaspora. Their narratives defy taboos, battle oppression,
break open locked gates, and speak their truth.
Ranging from grave to light and humorous to sensual and
remarkable, the stories in Torn Body, One Soul come from a diverse
core of perspective, gender, and geographic location but provide
insight into and a fragrance of a different civilization.
