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.

Recensioner i media

All novels are political and Minor Detail, like the best of them, transcends the authors own identity and geography. Shiblis writing is subtle and sharply observed. Fatima Bhutto, Guardian A sophisticated, oblique novel about empathy and the urge to right wrongs Anthony Cummins, Observer An intense and penetrating work about the profound impact of living with violenceShiblis work is powerful and this translation by Elisabeth Jaquette is rendered with exquisite clarity and quiet control. Katie da Cunha Lewin, Los Angeles Review of Books This is probably my novel of the year so far. Anthony Cummins, Daily Mail Though Minor Detail initially promises to be a kind of counterhistory or whodunita rescue of the victims story from military courts and Israeli newspapersit turns out to be something stranger and bleaker. Rather than a discovery of hidden truths, or a search for justice, it is a meditation on the repetitions of history, the past as a recurring trauma ... For Shibli, the emblematic experience of occupation is the longue duree of ennui and isolation rather than a dramatic moment of crisis. New York Review of Books
