Set in Palestinian refugee camp Tal el-Zaatar, where the Lebanese civil war first started, this tells of Aisha and her upbringing during the massacre which forced Palestinians to leave the camp. Using a mosaic of eye-witness accounts, Liana Badr presents a rewriting of Palestinian history.Reseña del editor:
The Arab Women Writers series presents the best of contemporary fiction from the Middle East; its Series Editor Dr. Fadia Faqir was awarded the Women in Publishing 1995 New Venture Award.
Taken from the quiet sanctuary of a convent school, where she works as a maid, Aisha is thrown back into the chaotic world of her parent's home in the Tal Ezza'tar refugee camp when the Lebanese civil war begins. From then on she is caught up in a series of tragedies, including the continuous bombardment of the camp by the Phalangists and the subsequent invasion and massacres within the settlement. Set within one of the most bloody conflicts of modern times, this heart-wrenching story shows how women's experience of war is particularly cruel, as they confront the dilemma of bringing a new life into a war-zone.
