Product description


A beautiful and moving tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of love Ann Weisgarber, author of Orange shortlisted The Personal History of Rachel Dupree An enthralling mix of history and Palestinian culture... Riveting The Lady Lilas Taha's great gift in Bitter Almonds is to create characters and scenes so richly resonant with life and vitality, that the complicated, lush world of the Middle East feels as tangible and close as any world you are living in. Crucial in our strange days? Perhaps more than anything. Naomi Shihab Nye, author of HABIBI

About the Author

Lilas Taha is a writer at heart, an electrical engineer by training and an advocate for domestic abuse victims by choice. She was born in Kuwait to a Syrian mother and a Palestinian father, and immigrated to the US following the Gulf war.
