Bassam Aramin is Palestinian. Rami Elhanan is Israeli. They inhabit a world of conflict that colors every aspect of their daily lives, from the roads they are allowed to drive on, to the schools their daughters, Abir and Smadar, each attend, to the checkpoints, both physical and emotional, that they must negotiate. Their worlds shift irreparably after ten-year-old old Abir is killed by a rubber bullet, and thirteen-year-old Smadar becomes the victim of suicide bombers. When Bassam and Rami learn of one another's stories, they recognize the loss that connects them, and they attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace. McCann crafts this novel out of a dazzling universe of fictional and non-fictional material. He crosses centuries and continents with ease, stitching time, art, history, nature, and politics together in a tale both heartbreaking and hopeful. McCann writes to embrace the extraordinary and at the same time, prevents the ordinary from drifting into oblivion.
