The Second Novel
Given that I am reaching the end of the writing of my second novel , I am proud and glad to announce for the first time its name:
It is called Under Philadelphi Road. It is written in the first person from the eyes of Ismail, a Palestinian boy who together with friends digs a tunnel under the border between Israel and Egypt in order to smuggle out goods to earn some money. When the tunnel collapses, Ismail is trapped on the other side of the border, in Egypt. As he takes the reader on his life's journey, the reader starts to understand that Ismail has been born for a very special purpose.
I will be creating a separate blog for Under Philadelphi Road so please stay tuned :)
