The Old Ladies of Nazareth by Naim Attallah


The Old Ladies of Nazareth by Naim Attallah

In this lyrical journey Naim Attallah captures the purity and simplicity of these two old ladies lives, and evokes the sounds and smells of a small Palestinian town, unchanged through the ages. The old ladies' qualities - courage, fortitude, determination, stoicism, and their loving kindness - shine out from these pages, a testament to a way of life that becomes increasingly rare to find.
