Adania Shibli, born in 1974 in Palestine, is two-time winner of the Qattan Foundation s Young Writer s Award for this and her acclaimed novel Touch.
‘We Are All Equally Far From Love’ revolves around a young woman who begins an enigmatic but passionate love affair conducted entirely in letters. But suddenly the letters no loners arrive. Perhaps they are not reaching their intended recipient? Only the teenage Afaf, who works at the local post office, would know. Her favorite duty is to open the mail and inform her collaborator father of the contents until she finds a mysterious set of love letters, apparently returned to their sender.
