About the Author(s)

Born in 1936 in Western Galilee in Palestine, Ghassan KANAFANI became one of the most important literary figures in the Palestinian Diaspora whose novels and short stories have been translated into sixteen languages. In the last few years of his life he acted as spokesman for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and in that capacity was assassinated in 1972 by Israeli agents who booby-trapped his car in Beirut.
