Selim Nassib's sharply observed novel tells a deeply human story that will be of intense interest to anyone concerned about the Middle East, its present conflict and possibilities for its future.
Albert Pharaon, heir to an enormous fortune, son of a rich Palestinian family, bored banker, has a lover in Haifa. And not just any lover: she is Jewish; she is a militant Zionist; she is the young Golda Meir, future Prime Minister of Israel. Love and allegiance clash in this historical novel about one of the twentieth century's central political figures.
Selim Nassib evokes the atmosphere of Palestine in the nineteen-twenties as he mixes history, biography, and legend - creating a bold, fictionalized account of a complex and tumultuous relationship.
