Tree & Other Stories, The

by Nasser, Abdallahal

The stories in The Tree are selections from Abdallah Al-Nasser’s previously published story collections, especially The Mirage and The Snow Siege, which both appeared in 2002. Dina Bosio and Christopher Tingley translated The Tree from Arabic, and their translation reads very well; Salma Khadra Joyyusi contributes a helpful introduction to the collection.
