Apeirogon: A Novel by Colum McCann – Longlisted for the Booker Prize. “Two fathers’ lives are upended: first, Rami’s thirteen-year-old daughter becomes the victim of suicide bombers; a decade later, Bassam’s ten-year-old daughter is killed by a rubber bullet. Rami and Bassam had been raised to hate one another. Yet together they attempt to use their grief as a weapon for peace – and with their one small act, start to permeate what has for generations seemed an impermeable conflict.” An exquisitely written novel based on a real-life Israeli-Palestinian friendship.
