Loved by our collective!

'The way you live your life in our culture, without apology or shame, even if with sadness, makes you extraordinary and special, Nahr.' 

Perhaps the most compelling figure I've encountered in literary fiction, Nahr—a Palestinian woman reflecting on her life from an Israeli prison—is neither a political mastermind nor swept up without agency, and her relationships with the women in her life are, for me, the beating heart of this story. The heavy sexual violence (much of which happens on the page) is modulated by moments of cathartic beauty and joy. 

A passionate exploration of family and indigeneity, and a devastating indictment of patriarchy and settler colonialism.
