"In a world where privilege has enabled people to refuse to acknowledge the genocide of Paestinians, it is important to value and empower books from Palestinian authors who highlight the plight of living under occupation, and represent the feelings of homesickness and frustration. “...I knew I could never again be complete in one place. This was what it meant to be exiled and disinherited-to straddle closed borders, never whole anywhere,” -Susan Abulhawa, Against The Loveless World.
