Palestine's Children: Returning to Haifa & Other Stories by Ghassan Kanafani
Politics and the novel, Ghassan Kanafani once said, are an indivisible case. This remains true in his book Palestine's Children, where each story involves a child who is victimized by political events and circumstances, but who nevertheless participates in the struggle toward a better future. As in Kanafani's other fiction, these stories explore the need to recover the past the lost homeland by action. At the same time, written by a major talent, they have a universal appeal.
This edition includes the translators' contextual introduction and a short biography of the author.
