The book Crescent, by Diana Abu-Jaber, draws the reader deeply into the experience of Arab refugees, immigrants, and their descendants from a broad perspective, making palpable their feeling of loss, not only of family members, but of identity, including the difficulties of creating a new one, while in exile. “Green-eyed, 39-year-old Sirine cooks up Arab specialties in a bustling cafe in Los Angeles where Arab students gather for a taste of home. When her doting uncle … introduces her to his colleague Hanif, the placid surface of her life is disturbed. Their affair begins quickly and ardently, as Sirine … discovers the pleasures of romance, and the exiled Han struggles to feel grounded in a place far from the Baghdad he loved as a boy.” - from Amazon Join us for a discussion of Saving the Jews, FDR and the Holocaust by Robert N. Rosen, led by Art Bousel.
