Fractured Destinies

by Rabai Al-Madhoun - £11.99  The American University in Cairo Press (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9789774168628 | ISBN 10: 9774168623

Palestinian-Armenian Ivana eloped with a British doctor in the 1940s, in the midst of the Nakba, and emigrated to England.
 
Over half a century later, her daughter Julie has been tasked with her dying wish: to take her ashes back to their old home in Acre.
 
With her husband Walid, they leave London and embark on a journey back to their country of birth.
 
Written in four parts, each as a concerto movement, Rabai al-Madhoun's pioneering new novel explores Palestinian exile, with all its complex loyalties and identities.
 
Broad in scope and sweeping in its history, it lays bare the tragedy of everyday Palestinian life.
