Romeo und Julia heute: Von der unmöglichen Liebe zwischen einer Jüdin und einem Palästinenser Die Tel Aviverin Liat lernt in New York den Maler Chilmi kennen, der aus Ramallah stammt. Die beiden verlieben sich, wohl wissend, dass ihre Liebe keine Zukunft hat: Wenn die Zeit in New York vorbei ist, wird auch die Beziehung, die eigentlich nicht sein darf, zu Ende gehen. Doch Liat und Chilmi haben die Rechnung ohne ihre Gefühle gemacht ... In der Heimat hätten sie sich nie kennengelernt, aber durch einen Zufall treffen die Israelin Liat und der Palästinenser Chilmi in New York aufeinander und verlieben sich. Liat kämpft mit sich, denn weder ihre Eltern noch ihre jüdischen New Yorker Freunde dürfen von der Beziehung erfahren, die ein klares Enddatum hat: Wenn Liat zurück nach Israel geht, ist Schluss. Doch Gefühle lassen sich nicht einfach abstellen, und die Herkunft der beiden sowie die Perspektivlosigkeit belasten ihre Gegenwart – eine Zukunft scheint unmöglich. Gibt es einen Ausweg, oder ist das private Glück vor dem Hintergrund des Konflikts der beiden Völker unmöglich? Ein Roman, der mit großer Wucht und in einer bildreichen, emotionalen Sprache von einer aussichtslosen Liebe erzählt. Das Buch wurde vom israelischen Erziehungsminister im Januar dieses Jahres von der Lektüreliste der Oberstufe gestrichen, was auch in Deutschland ein starkes Presseecho hervorrief.

In this original and sensitive ethnography of frontier life, Elizabeth Perkins recovers the rhythms of warfare, subsistence, and cultural encounter that governed existence on the margins of British America. Richly detailed, Border Life captures the intimate perceptive universe of the men and women who colonized Kentucky and southern Ohio during the Revolutionary era. In reconstructing the mental world of border inhabitants, Perkins draws on a pioneering source in oral history. In the 1840s, the Reverend John Dabney Shane conducted hundreds of interviews with surviving western settlers, gathering their recollections on topics ranging from food preparation to encounters with Native Americans. Although Shane's interviews have long been hailed as a rich, if complicated, source for western history, Perkins is the first scholar to consider them critically, as texts for cultural analysis. Border Life also deepens our understanding of how ordinary people struggled to make sense of their own lives within the stream of history. Discovering a significant disjuncture between recorded memory and written history in accounts of the early frontier, Perkins shows how historians and popular authors reshaped the messy complexities of remembered experience into heroic--and radically simplified--conquest narratives.

Voices from the borderlands push against boundaries in more ways than one, as Donna M. Kabalen de Bichara ably demonstrates in this investigation into the twentieth-century autobiographical writing of four women of Mexican origin who lived in the American Southwest. Until recently, little attention has been paid to the writing of the women included in this study. As Kabalen de Bichara notes, it is precisely such historical exclusion of texts written by Mexican American women that gives particular significance to the reexamination of the five autobiographical works that provide the focus for this in-depth study. “Early Life and Education” and Dew on the Thorn by Jovita González (1904–83), deal with life experiences in Texas and were likely written between 1926 and the 1940s; both texts were published in 1997. Romance of a Little Village Girl, first published in 1955, focuses on life in New Mexico, and was written by Cleofas Jaramillo (1878–1956) when the author was in her seventies. A Beautiful, Cruel Country, by Eva Antonio Wilbur-Cruce (1904–98), introduces the reader to history and a way of life that developed in the cultural space of Arizona. Created over a ten-year period, this text was published in 1987, just eleven years before the author’s death. Hoyt Street, by Mary Helen Ponce (b. 1938), began as a research paper during the period of the autobiographer’s undergraduate studies (1974–80), and was published in its present form in 1993. These border autobiographies can be understood as attempts on the part of the Mexican American female autobiographers to put themselves into the text and thus write their experiences into existence.

The Vermont-Quebec Border: Life on the Line is a visual record of life in the villages, towns, and countryside in this unique and special part of the world. In recent years, issues relating to the border have been thrust to the forefront as never before. This is due not only to growing security concerns but also to an increasing scrutiny in the media of border issues and of how heightened security is impacting life in communities all along the border. The border has played an important role in the history and everyday lives of the people living along its length, both in Vermont and Quebec, and it will undoubtedly continue to shape these communities in the years to come.

«L’odio non ci salverà. L’odio genera solo odio, mentre l’amore ha la capacità di annullare i confini. Io sto con Dorit Rabinyan.» Svetlana Alexievich, Nobel Letteratura 2015 «Una storia d'amore più forte dell'eterno conflitto fra due popoli. Un libro magnifico.» Amos Oz «Questo libro va riconosciuto per il suo alto valore.» Abraham Yehoshua Quali sono i confini degli uomini? E quali quelli del cuore? È autunno, a New York. Il secondo senza le Torri. Liat ha appena conosciuto Hilmi e gli cammina accanto nel pomeriggio che imbrunisce, mentre pensa: Non hai già abbastanza guai? Fermati, finché puoi! Ma fermarsi non può, perché, nonostante le ferite, la magia della Grande Mela è ancora intatta, e Hilmi ha gli occhi dolci e grandi, color cannella, riccioli neri e un sorriso infantile che spezza il cuore. Lei è di Tel Aviv, fa la traduttrice e si trova negli USA grazie a una borsa di studio. Ha servito nell’esercito e ama la sua famiglia (Che cosa penserebbero, se lo sapessero?). Lui vive a Brooklyn e fa il pittore, e nei suoi quadri c’è sempre un bimbo che dorme e sogna il mare, quel mare di cui da ragazzo poteva cogliere appena un lembo, da lassù, al nono piano di un palazzo di Ramallah. Che questo amore sia un’isola nel tempo, si dice lei. Un amore a cronometro, un amore a scadenza, la stessa indicata sul visto, la stessa impressa sul biglietto del volo di ritorno per Israele, verso la vita reale. Finché, mentre oscillano tra l’ebbrezza della libertà e il senso di colpa, scoprendosi accomunati dalla nostalgia per quello stesso sole e quello stesso cielo, la vita reale non bussa davvero alla loro porta... Bandito dal ministero dell’Istruzione israeliano in quanto «minaccia all’identità ebraica», Borderlife, una grande storia d’amore impossibile fra un’ebrea e un palestinese, ha unito i lettori di un Paese diviso, guidandoli verso quei territori dell’anima che nessuno potrà mai occupare.
