The Palestinian Lover

A novel by


The impossible love affair between Golda Meir and a Palestinian aristocrat.

Albert Pharaon, heir to an enormous fortune, son of a rich Palestinian family, and bored banker, has a lover in Haifa. And not just any lover: she is Jewish; she is a militant Zionist; her name is Golda Meir, future president of Israel.

Forbidden love and dangerous passions combine in this historical novel about one of the century's major political figures. Slim Nassib masterfully evokes the atmosphere of Palestine in the 1920s. He mixes history, biography, and legend in this gripping tale of an "impossible affair."
