Raja Shehadeh: To Absent Fathers image

In 1985, Raja Shehadeh’s father Aziz was murdered in a pre-meditated knife attack. The circumstances of the crime are the subject of his Strangers in the House.
Today, through his new memoir, Shehadeh sheds a different light on the father-son relationship that still influences him 37 years on. We Could Have Been Friends, My Father And I is the Palestinian author’s finest, most profoundly moving book to date. He appears in conversation with Esa Aldegheri.
