Summer, 2017. Sonia Nasir takes a break from the London theatre scene to visit her older sister Haneen in Haifa, and becomes involved in a production of Hamlet in the West Bank. The director Mariam’s grand vision of artistic resistance and Palestinian cultural unity leads her not only to involve elements from all over Palestinian society in her production, but also her brother Salim, a member of the Israeli parliament, whose contribution leads rapidly to his suspension from the Knesset and draws the attention of the Israeli state to the theatrical project—with dramatic results.

Isabella Hammad is the author of The Parisian and her second novel, Enter Ghost, is forthcoming in 2023. She won a 2019 National Book Award “5 Under 35” and received the 2020 Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She has received fellowships from the Lannan Foundation, MacDowell, the Santa Maddalena Foundation, and the Bellagio Rockefeller Foundation, and has taught creative writing in the graduate programs at New York University and Brown University. She is currently a fellow of Columbia University’s Institute for Ideas & Imagination
