A New Book: A Woman is No Man

I am in the midst of reading this book.  It is about some Palestinians with two different generations that have ended up in Brooklyn in NYC.  Each generation has issues dealing with how to be Palestinian and American.  How much do they have to give up of their old culture to survive in the new nation that I have fled to in order to stay alive and survive and keep food on the table

It is told from the viewpoint of the women who have to deal with their men’s anger and frustation which gets redirected onto them.

I am almost halfway though, it is a really fast read and  I am enjoying it, and I believe learning a lot because the lives described is based on the author’s history.
