Gate of the Sun (Bab al-Shams) by Elias Khoury

With a lyrical approach to language and a meandering timeline, this ambitious, provocative, and insightful novel captures the Palestinian crisis – from the war of 1948 to the present – in a collage of poignant and very human stories. It is an emotional and beautiful saga that simply envelopes the reader. The Lebanese author Elias Khoury wrote Gate of the Sun in 1998.
