Another book from the Tournament of Books long but not shortlist, this is a novel about Palestinian refugees who resettle in Brooklyn and have a family, and various female members (original and some that marry in) and how they cope with being far from home, relatively isolated, and in a culture (of their home) of babies and violence. There is a lot of sadness here, and TW for domestic violence and self-harm.
