Dancing Arabs - Sayed Kashua, Miriam Shlesinger A novel of a boy growing as an Arab in Israeli-occupied Palestine, and how he tries to shed his Arabic identity, and almost become Jewish, but realising he cant do that, he is in the end, still Arabic. Spare prose, declarative, not much style, it makes me hunger now for a well-written book.
