  • Short Description

This is what it is, to be displaced. This is what it is to leave your home and start over in a new country.

Abdallah?s encounter with the military governor on the eve of his departure for America opens this collection of stories, and Khalil al-Ibrahami?s moving search for his lost fiancée in Jerusalem closes the collection. In between, Issa J. Boullata?s stories show what it?s like to be an Arab from Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, or Egypt making a new life as an immigrant in Canada or the United States. This is what it is, to be displaced. This is what it is to leave your home and start over in a new country.

Born in Jerusalem, Issa J. Boullata was a Palestinian writer, scholar, and translator who taught Arabic studies at Hartford Seminary, Connecticut, before moving to Montreal, where he taught graduate courses in Arabic literature, Modern Arab Thought, and Qur?anic Studies at McGill University?s Institute of Islamic Studies. The author of several books on Arabic literature and on the Qur?an, he was a noted translator of Arabic literature and twice won the Arkansas Arabic Translation Award. He died in 2019 at the age of 90.
