Time of White Horses

by Ibrahim Nasrallah, translated by Nancy Roberts
£10.99   paperback  The American University in Cairo Press (2016)

Time of White Horses by Ibrahim Nasrallah, translated by Nancy Roberts Shortlisted for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction
 
Spanning the collapse of Ottoman rule and the British Mandate in Palestine, this is the story of three generations of a defiant family from the Palestinian village of Hadiya before 1948.
 
Through the lives of Mahmud, chief elder of Hadiya, his son Khaled, and Khaled’s grandson Naji, we enter the life of a tribe whose fate is decided by one colonizer after another. Khaled’s remarkable white mare, Hamama, and her descendants feel and share the family’s struggles and as a siege grips Hadiya, it falls to Khaled to save his people from a descending tyranny.
