Summary
It is late 1948 and days before his wife is to give birth for the first time, Ghassan, is approached by two talking jackals threatening him that, if he doesn't paint the signs of the newly named villages and towns, his wife will give birth to a goat. Thus begins the exile to Gaza of Ghassan and his goat. Told in loosely linked stories, In the Cemetery of the Orange Trees explores the Palestinians seven-decade long diaspora. The history of modern day Gaza is told as it has never been told: through the eyes of a night guardian of a talking goat; a carrier pigeon that befriends a young boy who sells photos of martyrs; a refugee who eats books and then recites them word for word; a Palestinian father who sneaks animals into Gaza through a labyrinth of tunnels; a talking sheep who is caged in the Gaza Zoo. Woven throughout the novel, an American arrives in Gaza, witnessing the beauty and horror of this widely ignored place, leaving, months later, a person never again the same. In the Cemetery of the Orange Trees is a disquieting allegory of the clash between the occupied and the occupier
