Book Launch - 'The Palace of Angels'

Join Mohammed Massoud Morsi in celebrating his latest title, ‘The Palace of Angels’ (Wild Dingo Press) to be launched by storyteller and author, Sisonke Msimang.

The Palace of Angels is a collection of three stories praised by the likes of Geraldine Brooks and Ilan Pappé (Noam Chomsky’s co-author).

The stories are discrete and exquisitely written, set in Palestine from the 1990s to the present day. The reader is lead to question how we discover who we really are, and what we wish to become. The stories are united in exposing ‘the clash between love and hate, revenge and compassion, within an impossible and abnormal reality of occupation, colonisation and ethnic cleansing’ (Ilan Pappé).

Vital, brutal and tender, The Palace of the Angels is written with the urgency of breaking news and the delicacy of poetry. This is Morsi at his passionate best. — Geraldine Brooks
