Thursday Giveaway: Sayed Kashua’s Let It Be Morning

This week, I’d like to give away a copy of Sayed Kashua’s second novel, Let It Be Morning, translated from the Hebrew by Miriam Schlesinger. (You can read a review of Kashua’s first book, Dancing Arabs, in the Moorishgirl archive.) In Let It Be Morning, the unnamed narrator moves his family from Jerusalem back to his native village of Tira, in the Galilee, where he hopes that life will be more bearable. Within a few days however, Israeli tanks surround the village, without warning. Is it an attack? A siege? Or something entirely different? It’s a gripping tale of displacement, isolation, and belonging. The first reader to email me with a request gets the book. Please use the subject line: “Kashua.” Please include your mailing address. Previous winners excluded.

Update: The winner is Shelley E., from Queens, New York.
