About the Author

Susan Abulhawa was born to refugees of the Six Day War of 1967, and moved to the United States as a teenager. In 2001, she founded Playgrounds for Palestine, Inc., to build playgrounds for children in occupied territories. A biologist, mother, and activist, Susan has contributed essays to the New York Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, and Philadelphia Inquirer, among other publications. Mornings in Jenin, her first novel, was published in a hardcover edition by Journey Publications in 2006 under the title The Scar of David, but fell out of print. It is widely available for the first time, in a fully revised edition

Reviews

"Every now and again a literary work changes the way people think. Abulhawa...has crafted a brilliant first novel about Palestine... [This] intensely beautiful fictionalized history... should be read by both politicians and those interested in contemporary politics." - Library Journal

"This complex story is beautifully told... The perspective is brutal, yet ultimately not without hope... [Abulhawa] draws us into the nightmare of her heroine's existence with convincing passion." - Historical Novels Review

"Illuminating and deeply moving, Abulhawa's epic resonates with compassion...You can't ask more of historical fiction." - Brooklyn Rail

"Abulhawa's pathos and mastery enables the reader to taste, smell and grasp the chronicles of Palestine as if one is actually there... Lovely and heartrending, this story is a must-read for those who wish to not only understand the catastrophe of the Palestinians with their heads but with their hearts." - Palestine Chronicle
