The Phoenix has been translated from Arabic. It is a rich, complex and thoroughly engrossing novel that ends in a note of optimism for the Arab people.
Judy Smallman, Australian Book Review

A fantastic epic novel, set in Gaza - a city of today's news - pictured as it might have been two hundred years ago. The Thousand and One Nights revived, characters keep appearing, their stories weaved into the story of Youness, a Bedouin in his thirties, settling in the Olive Valley. A brilliant new writer now also in the English-speaking world.
Clarissa Stein, AMBR
