"An Unlasting Home" by Mai Al-Nakib
Award-winning short story writer Mai Al-Nakib's debut novel "An Unlasting Home" is a multigenerational story chronicling the lives of three different Arab women. Beginning in 2013, the story focuses on Sara, a philosophy professor at Kuwait University who returned home to Kuwait 11 years earlier after her mother's sudden death. When a lesson on Nietzsche results in accusations of blasphemy, the threat of Sara being executed becomes all too real. This leads to her reflecting on her place in her country as she looks back on the lives of the women who raised her.
