Lesung I internationales literaturfestival berlin

In the summer of 1949, Israeli soldiers shot a group of Bedouins in the Negev desert. The only survivor was captured, raped, and killed. Decades later, a young woman in Ramallah investigates this crime that happened exactly 25 years before she was born. A »sophisticated, oblique novel about empathy and the urge to right wrongs.« [The Guardian]
