A groundbreaking collection of essays by celebrated international writers bears witness to the human cost of fifty years of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. In Kingdom of Olives and Ash, Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman, two of today's most renowned novelists and essayists, have teamed up with the Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence—an organization comprised of former Israeli soldiers who served in the occupied territories and saw firsthand the injustice there—and a host of illustrious writers to tell the stories of the people on the ground in the contested territories. Kingdom of Olives and Ash includes contributions from several of today’s most esteemed storytellers including: Colum McCann, Jacqueline Woodson, Colm Toibin, Geraldine Brooks, Dave Eggers, Hari Kunzru, Raja Shehadeh, Mario Vargas Llosa and Assaf Gavron, as well as from editors Chabon and Waldman. Through these incisive, perceptive, and poignant essays, readers will gain unique insight into the narratives behind the litany of grim destruction broadcasted nightly on the news, as well as deeper understanding of the conflict as experienced by the people who live in the occupied territories. Together, these stories stand witness to the human cost of the occupation.

ΣΤΗΝ ΠΑΓΩΜΕΝΗ ΛΕΥΚΟΤΗΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΒΕΡΜΟΝΤ… Ο Φρανκ Ραθ νόμιζε πως είχε ξεμπερδέψει με τις δολοφονίες όταν παρέδωσε το σήμα του αστυνομικού για να γίνει ιδιωτικός ντετέκτιβ και να μεγαλώσει την κόρη του ως ο μοναδικός της κηδεμόνας. Όμως η αστυνομία στην απομακρυσμένη ορεινή κοινότητα που ζει βρίσκει ένα εγκαταλελειμμένο αυτοκίνητο παρατημένο στον δρόμο και διαπιστώνει πως ανήκει σε μια πανέμορφη έφηβη που έχει εξαφανιστεί χωρίς κανένα ίχνος. Του ζητείται λοιπόν να αναλάβει την έρευνα… ΤΟ ΚΑΚΟ ΚΑΡΑΔΟΚΕΙ… Αυτή είναι μόνο η αρχή καθώς οι εξαφανίσεις νεαρών γυναικών διαδέχονται η μία την άλλη και ο Ραθ αναγκάζεται να αντιμετωπίσει τόσο τις συνέπειες του βίαιου και επώδυνου παρελθόντος του όσο και τις σκοτεινότερες εκδηλώσεις της ανθρώπινης ψυχής. ΚΑΙ ΚΑΝΕΙΣ ΔΕΝ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΣΦΑΛΗΣ.

Hamas has taken power in Palestine, and the Israeli government is rounding up threats. When Palestinian policewoman Rania Bakara finds herself thrown in prison, though she has never been part of Hamas, her friend Chloe flies in from San Francisco to get her out. Chloe begs an Israeli policeman named Benny for help—and Benny offers Rania a way out: investigate the death of a young man in a village near her own. The young man’s neighbors believe the Israeli army killed him; Benny believes his death might not have been so honorable. Initially, Rania refuses; she has no interest in helping the Israelis. But she is released anyway, and returns home to find herself without a job and suspected of being a traitor. Searching for redemption, she launches an investigation into the young man’s death that draws her into a Palestinian gay scene she never knew existed. With Chloe and her Palestinian Australian lover as guides, Rania explores a Jerusalem gay bar, meets with a lesbian support group, and plunges deep into the victim’s world, forcing her to question her beliefs about love, justice, and cultural identity.

" Le checkpoint incarne l'occupation, il la symbolise, il la manifeste. Chaque passage rappelle aux Palestiniens de H2 [à Hébron] qu'ils sont soumis au pouvoir des militaires, qu'ils sont occupés ; chaque passage appuie là où ça fait mal. Comme un point de contention sur un corps congestionné, une pression sur un corps douloureux, sur un corps qui déborde. " Maylis de Kerangal. 50 ans après la guerre des Six-Jours et l'occupation de la Cisjordanie par Israël, que signifie, au quotidien, vivre dans les Territoires occupés ? Ayelet Waldman et Michael Chabon se sont associés à l'ONG israélienne " Breaking the Silence " pour demander à 24 brillants écrivains du monde entier de se rendre dans les Territoires occupés afin de témoigner du quotidien de ceux et de celles qui y vivent, et de réfléchir, de l'intérieur, au conflit israélo-arabe. Au travers de leurs courts récits, poignants, incisifs, tendres ou révoltés, on entre dans les villes occupées, dans les maisons, on partage les inquiétudes des Palestiniens, leurs combats, leurs humiliations, leurs difficultés à se déplacer, à étudier, à avoir une vie sociale. Ce livre est aussi un état des lieux des guerres qui déchirent deux peuples, des tensions historiques, géopolitiques et économiques, et d'une politique gouvernementale israélienne toujours plus invasive. 26 histoires qui racontent le coût humain de l'occupation.

Michael Chabon, Dave Eggers, Mario Vargas Llosa, Colm Tóibín, Ayelet Waldman, Maylis de Kerangal, Graldine Brooks, Jacqueline Woodson, Ala Hlehel, Madeleine Thien, Rachel Kusher, RajaShehadeh, Lars Saabye Christensen, Emily Raboteau, Assaf Gavron, Taiye Selasi, Eimear McBride, Hari Kunzru, Lorraine Adams, Helon Habila, Eva Menasse, Anita Desai, PorochistaKhakpour, Fida Jiryis, Arnon Grunberg & Colum McCain. Michael Chabon y su esposa, la escritora de origen israelí Ayelet Waldman, han convocado a algunas de las plumas más destacadas del panorama internacional para que nos den su visión sobre un conflicto enquistado: la ocupación israelí de Palestina. Veinticinco escritores de primer nivel aportan en este libro su visión sobre la ocupación israelí de Palestina. Invitados por la ONG Breaking the Silence (Rompiendo el Silencio), sus textos son apuntes del natural cuando se cumplen cincuenta años de la guerra de los Seis Días. Lejos del seguimiento mediático del conflicto, estas historias nacen de encuentros con líderes políticos, intelectuales y activistas, pero también de la convivencia con empresarios, granjeros, abuelos, padres e hijos. Son testimonios como el de Mario Vargas Llosa en tribunales militares, en procesos a menores de edad con los nervios rotos por un programa de intimidación que siembra el pánico para prevenir el hipotético terror. En estas páginas, el lector encontrará también los recuerdos de Colm Tóibín y sus entrevistas con Yasser Arafat, o asistirá a la estupefacción de un Michael Chabon que sigue los pasos de un norteamericano que ha perdido su nacionalidad y vive una existencia kafkiana desde que decidió residir el pueblo de su familia, en Cisjordania. Reseñas: «Estas historias, profundamente inquietantes, exigen respuestas urgentes al conflicto de Oriente Próximo. [...] Son testimonios conmovedores, desgarradores y exasperantes que dancuenta de la escalofriante crueldad de la política de Israel hacia los palestinos.» Kirkus Review «El mensaje es inquebrantable: la vida bajo la ocupación es espantosa y opresiva.» Publishers Weekly
