Loud Sounds from the Holy Land

Short Fiction by Palestinian Women- Edited and Translated by Jamal Assadi- With Assistance from Martha Moody

Jamal Assadi

Loud Sounds from the Holy Land, the fourth in a series of volumes on Palestinian short fiction writers by Jamal Assadi, covers the works of women writers who manage to unite the contradictions of being Israeli citizens and daughters of the Palestinian people. What truly gives these Israeli-Palestinian women their distinctive flavor is their ability to challenge norms, fight oppression, burst through closed doors, and show their true faces. Readers of this volume will relish the aroma of a different culture, while scholars interested in Arabic literature will have the opportunity to tread new paths for academic assessment and critique.
