Kanafani's original writing style is brought out beautifully in this excellent translation.
In this emotional story, it is stressed that this child's sacrifice must not be lost, but be a reminder of all which has been lost.
This book contains a novella as well as several short stories by the prominent Palestinian author Ghassan Kanafani.
