Kingdom of Olives and Ash

(2017)
A non fiction book by

 
A groundbreaking collection of essays by celebrated international writers bears witness to the human cost of 50 years of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.

In Kingdom of Olives and Ash, Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman, two of today's most renowned novelists and essayists, have teamed up with the Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence - an organization comprised of former Israeli soldiers who served in the occupied territories and saw firsthand the injustice there - and a host of illustrious writers to tell the stories of the people on the ground in the contested territories.

Kingdom of Olives and Ash includes contributions from several of today's most esteemed storytellers including: Colum McCann, Jacqueline Woodson, Colm Toibin, Geraldine Brooks, Dave Eggers, Hari Kunzru, Raja Shehadeh, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Assaf Gavron as well as from editors Chabon and Waldman. Through these incisive, perceptive, and poignant essays, listeners will gain unique insight into the narratives behind the litany of grim destruction broadcasted nightly on the news as well as deeper understanding of the conflict as experienced by the people who live in the occupied territories. Together, these stories stand witness to the human cost of the occupation.
