Adania Shibli was born in Palestine in 1974. Her first two novels appeared in English with Clockroot Books as TOUCH (tr. Paula Haydar, 2010) and WE ARE ALL EQUALLY FAR FROM LOVE (tr. Paul Starkey, 2012). She was awarded the Young Writer's Award by the A. M. Qattan Foundation in 2002 and 2004.
'All novels are political and MINOR DETAIL, like the best of them, transcends the author's own identity and geography. Shibli's writing is subtle and sharply observed.' - Fatima Bhutto, GUARDIAN
