Claire Hajaj’s assured and ambitious debut Ishmael’s Oranges and Dorit Rabinyan’s prizewinning All the Rivers are spellbinding novels exploring the faultlines that threaten the likelihood of enduring love between Arab and Jew. In a captivating narrative of love and loss, Ishmael's Oranges tells the story of two families against the background of repeated conflicts to examine whether love can transcend the legacy of hatred.

In a momentous tale, crisscrossed by physical and emotional borderlines, Dorit Rabinyan’s All the Rivers courageously demarcates an intimate short-term space for two, far from the tensions and fissures that create the separation between ‘us’ and ‘them’. In conversation with the director of the forthcoming M-Fest, critic Arifa Akbar.
