AUTHOR, MY VOICE SOUGHT THE WIND AND MORNINGS IN JENIN

The raw humanity, tenderness, and defiance in this collection of short stories by young Palestinians in Gaza stands as a testament to the resilience, moral fortitude, and beauty of oppressed and violated people everywhere. The writers are barely in their twenties and though their lives echo of bombs, bullets, and Israel’s intentional programs to dismantle them, their stories teach us what it means to have an unconquered spirit and unbroken will.  These are the next generation of Palestinian writers and intellectuals. We should all nurture their voices, lift them up, and read their stories then pass them on.
