Wild Thorns

by Sahar Khalifeh - £7.99  Saqi Books (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780863565373 | ISBN 10: 0863565379

A young Palestinian named Usama returns from working in the Gulf to support the resistance movement. His mission is to blow up buses transporting Palestinian workers to Israel.
 
Shocked to discover that many of his fellow citizens have adjusted to life under military rule, Usama exchanges harsh words with his friends and family. Despite some uncertainty, he sets out to accomplish his mission...with disastrous consequences.
 
Originally published in Jerusalem, Wild Thorns was the first Arab novel to offer a glimpse of social and personal relations under Israeli occupation. Featuring unsentimental portrayals of everyday life, its deep sincerity, uncompromising honesty and rich emotional core plead elegantly for the cause of survival in the face of oppression.
