Romeo and Juliet in Palestine… in Arabic

Romeo and Juliet in Palestine will be published in an Arabic translation by the Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center in Ramallah in 2019. The translation is by Hiba Nazier, working with her fellow students at An-Najah University. Hiba also designed the beautiful cover.

I am delighted the book has been translated by students who are studying in circumstances very close to those described in the book.

Hiba and her tutor, Ahmad Qabaha, will be writing a preface to the translation, which will be posted here in English in due course.

Romeo and Juliet in Palestine was originally published in the UK and US by Zero Books in 2015.
