A Lake Beyond the Wind by Yahya Yakhlif

$ 5.00 $ 10.00

In this absorbingly realistic novel about the catastrophic year of 1948, Yakhlif focuses on the Palestinian village of Samakh, deftly juxtaposing accounts of rudimentary military "training and reconnaissance" with vignettes of village life. The author tenderly gathers into his tale all the town folk, the soldiers of the beleaguered Arab Liberation Army, the animals and the natural world, making it all the more powerful a lament for a world that is no more. Translated by Mary Jayyusi and Christopher Tingley.
