5.0 out of 5 stars A Palestian child raised in exile, 4 Dec. 2002
This review is from: In Search of Fatima: A Palestinian Story (Hardcover)
This is a most blatantly honest account of the events in Palestine up to 1948 firstly seen throught the innocent eyes of a Palestinian Muslim child, a girl; how that little girl becomes a woman living in England in exile and contrary to her parents' wishes eagerly adopts her host country's culture, education and habits to the point of marriage. The confusion she feels as events unfold in the Middle East, through her adolescence to adulthood, is laid bare on the page and her accounts of British ignorance of the plight of Palestinians at that time are disturbing. (One wonders how much that has changed). Relationships between Arab men and Western women and vice versa are particularly well brought to our attention and her eventual return visit to her homeland is heartbreaking. Ghada Karmi has shown great courage in writing this book and I, for one, have learned a lot as well as thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I hope this will be published worldwide.
