Men in the Sun and Other Palestinian Stories

by Ghassan Kanafani / translated by Hilary Kilpatrick

This collection of important stories by novelist, journalist, teacher, and Palestinian activist Ghassan Kanafani includes the stunning novella Men in the Sun (1962), the basis of the film The Dupes.

Also in the volume are The Land of Sad Oranges(1958), If You Were a Horse… (1961), A Hand in the Grave (1962), The Falcon (1961), Letter from Gaza (1956), and an extract from Umm Saad(1969). In the unsparing clarity of his writing, Kanafani offers the reader a gritty look at the agonized world of Palestine and the adjoining Middle East.
