Forward on my ‘unique mystery series’

The Forward profiles me and my series of Palestinian crime novels this week, calling it a “unique mystery series.” I’m very happy that their correspondent Amy Klein picked up on a particular point I made in our interview: “The thing not to lose sight of is that these are crime novels; they are entertaining. They should be poetic, witty, exciting — not just teach some political message. This makes it something people who might not be open to reading a nonfiction book about the Palestinians or a newspaper article about them can appreciate,” he said. “Because it’s entertaining, you can set aside your preconceptions.” I include a photo of Forward correspondent Amy Klein looking happy to reinforce this point.
