Working on My New NovelMy project is to write a continuation of my novel The Gate of the Sun. The Nakba will be viewed from the perspective of the Palestinians who became Israeli citizens after 1948. It is a novel on novels, where there will be a critical reading of both Palestinian and Israeli literatures, in an attempt to create what I call the stories as mirrors of other stories.
