Sayed Kashua's book presentation has been canceled due to health reasons. Nevertheless, we would like to bring his book to your attention:

In his new novel, the Israeli author Sayed Kashua tells the skilfully woven story of two Arab Israelis whose burning desire is to be part of Jewish Israel. They do everything in their power to lose not only their foreignness, but also their Arab culture which they see as backward. They seek their salvation in the promises of pop culture and Western individualism that make everything seem possible. But it is this that dooms them to failure.
