Radical Book Club – Minor Detail

21 January @ 6:00 pm

Minor detail

Ulverston Radical Book Club January Book club discussion: Sunday 21st Jan, 7pm at the Hope and Anchor. Discussing MINOR DETAIL by Adania Shibli.

Minor Detail begins during the summer of 1949, one year after the war that the Palestinians mourn as the Nakba – the catastrophe that led to the displacement and expulsion of more than 700,000 people – and the Israelis celebrate as the War of Independence. Israeli soldiers capture and rape a young Palestinian woman, and kill and bury her in the sand. Many years later, a woman in Ramallah becomes fascinated to the point of obsession with this ‘minor detail’ of history. A haunting meditation on war, violence and memory, MINOR DETAIL cuts to the heart of the Palestinian experience of dispossession, life under occupation, and the persistent difficulty of piecing together a narrative in the face of ongoing erasure and disempowerment.
