Well this week has seen arrival of two book by writers I have written about before but also from different sides of the middle east .
First to arrive this week was this Novel from Israeli , the fourth book to be translated to english from this writer whom I first reviewed here on the blog with his book Almost dead , this seems to a more mature work from a writer whom , I like first time round .this book has been called the Great Israeli novel and follows the goings , comings and politics of one hilltop in modern Israeli .
Then today dropped through from Elias Khoury ,another writer I have reviewed before on the blog two books by him Yalo and As though she were sleeping .Considered by many to be one of the finest voice from Arabic literature this is his latest offering and follows one man’s journey back to Beirut from the safety of France to find the mythical ghost of a man the hero of the civil war Sinalcol .
So two writers from different sides of the middle east both at the height of the career be interesting to see which I enjoy most this time round .
Have you had anything interesting arrive this week ?
