The Orchard plots the story of two brothers -- a Jew and a Muslim -- on the mythic ground of Palestine and against the historical background of the region from the closing days of the Ottoman occupation to the Israeli-Egyptian war of 1956. It is a tale of fratricide and incest, and the haunting, Biblical rhythms of the prose remind us that it tells an old, old story of violence and loss.
