THE OLD LADIES OF NAZARETH
Naim Attallah
ISBN: 9 780704 371163
HB • 72pp
225 x 130mm
Memoir

In this lyrical journey Naim Attallah captures the purity and simplicity of the lives of two old ladies who lived in the biblical town of Nazareth. They live sparsely and carefully in tune with their surroundings, adapting to the rhythms of nature to eke out a living. The son of a brief marriage interrupts their simple life; he has become a stranger. It is his son, the grandson, who is most important to them. The old ladies’ qualities – courage, fortitude, determination, stoicism, and their loving kindness – shine out from these pages, a testament to a way of life that is increasingly remote.
