Haifa Fragments
khulud khamis
Instant Download

Jewellery designer Maisoon wants an ordinary extraordinary life, which isn’t easy for a tradition-defying, activist, Palestinian citizen of Israel who refuses to be crushed by the feeling of being an unwelcome guest in the land of her ancestors. Frustrated by the apathy of her boyfriend Ziyad and her father Majid—who want her to get on with her life and forget those in the Occupied Territories—she lashes out, only to discover her father isn’t the man she thought he was.

Raised a Christian, in a relationship with a Muslim man and enamoured with a Palestinian woman from the Occupied Territories, Maisoon must determine her own path.

Spinifex Press interviews khulud khamis

Reviews
Write a review.
With her debut novel Haifa Fragments, Palestinian Slovakian writer khulud khamis pens a compulsive narrative that examines the complex of nationality, gender, sexuality, religion and culture in Palestine.
Peter Cherry, The Electronic Intifada
Haifa Fragments is not really an activist novel. Not at all. It’s a series of beautifully sketched love stories...But etched through these love stories are also arguments around politics, nationalism and injustice.
Amanda Hickey, Verity La
The work is contemporary and those who are familiar with the political background would be able to place events that are alluded to, but this vibrant novel is completely open to those with little or no knowledge of Palestinian history.
Selma Dabbagh, Mascara Literary Review
