  • Dancing Arabs By Sayed Kashua Miriam Shlesinger A story born out of the tensions between Jewish and Arab Israelis, the debut novel by twenty eight year old Arab Israeli Sayed Kashua has been praised around the world for its honesty, irony, humor, and its uniquely human portrayal of a young man who moves between two societies, becoming a stranger to both Kashua s nameless antihero has big shoes to fill, having grown upA story born out of the tensions between Jewish and Arab Israelis, the debut novel by twenty eight year old Arab Israeli Sayed Kashua has been praised around the world for its honesty, irony, humor, and its uniquely human portrayal of a young man who moves between two societies, becoming a stranger to both.Kashua s nameless antihero has big shoes to fill, having grown up with the myth of a grandfather who died fighting the Zionists in 1948, and with a father who was jailed for blowing up a school cafeteria in the name of freedom When he is granted a scholarship to an elite Jewish boarding school, his family rejoices, dreaming that he will grow up to be the first Arab to build an atom bomb But to their dismay, he turns out to be a coward devoid of any national pride his only ambition is to fit in with his Jewish peers who reject him He changes his clothes, his accent, his eating habits, and becomes an expert at faking identities, sliding between different cultures, different schools, different languages, and eventually a Jewish lover and an Arab wife.With refreshing candor and self deprecating wit, Kashua brings us a protagonist whose greatest accomplishment is his ability to disappear In a land where personal and national identities are synonymous, Dancing Arabs brilliantly maps one man s struggle to disentangle the two, only to tragically and inevitably forfeit both.
    Dancing Arabs By Sayed Kashua Miriam Shlesinger Dancing Arabs by Sayed Kashua A truly fascinating novel from the perspective of an Israeli Arab who grows up during a difficult time The writing is compelling, and in a way, I was reminded a lot of James Joyce Dancing Arabs reads very much like a Palestinian Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, though I certainly enjoyed Dancing Arabs than I enjoyed Portrait. Dancing Arabs Sayed Kashua, Fajer Al Kaisi Dancing Arabs is an insightful look into the complexities of living in a society divided by sectarianism and historic resentments It is not without some hope as it takes its anti hero to a certain level of maturity through fatherhood and coming to terms with the responsibilities of being a husband.

    1. I hardly know where to begin with this review It feels as if I read than one book within these pages but as I consider that thought, it makes complete sense The young Arab Israeli boy, who grows to adulthood within these pages, lives in multiple worlds, a deeply dysfunctional world, which has in some ways caused him to lead a somewhat schizophrenic existence mentally, physically, occupationally, maritally, in just about every way.How does an Arab citizen of Israel exist Who is he What does he b [...]


    2. I read this book in a few hours this afternoon.When Paul, my husband came home about an hour ago I started to read him parts of this book and was laughing sooooooooooooooooo hard I was rolling on the floor Paul said I should write a review saying Its a toilet reading book for peeing.Laugh Pee Laugh pee Really Am I suppose to be taking some serious message from this book Hm I ll have my Jewish book club meeting Sunday morning Nov 17th I curious what others in the group will say Me I was on the fl [...]


    3. I was confused while I read this about his use of time and tense, how well connected all his stories were, where his narrative was taking the reader, and how the heck was he going to end it I fully expected to be giving the book three stars and fully expected to feel a bit meh about the whole thing, despite numerous highlighted passages, which I highlighted for his insight, his humor, his ability to suddenly tap directly into what life as a non Jewish Israeli citizen is like I just felt like he [...]


    4. Sayed Kashua, an Arab writing in Hebrew, is like Ralph Ellison without the anger, Woody Allen without the arrogance, Sherman Alexie without the pride, Louis CK without the privilege This semi autobiographical first novel of vignettes depicts the life of Palestinian citizens of Israel living, grumbling, stumbling, and disappointing each other in the Israeli village of Tira Regret and frustration abound The unnamed protagonist delicate and withdrawn is chosen to attend a prestigious boarding schoo [...]


    5. Short story snippets of a young Palestinian boy, a scholarship boy, a promising young Arab whose parents send him to a Jewish school so he can get ahead.To an American ear thes will sound very much like the stories of black folk, African Americans trying to pass as white in the 1970 s Think race in the USA, and you ll get the flavor So, it expresses the plight of Palestinians, 20 percent of Israel s population, Arab citizens of Israel trying to pass as Jewish because, in a religious state, it me [...]



    6. I enjoyed reading a novel from an Arab boy s point of view growing up in Israel It wasn t particularly political but gave a realistic impression of life in that country.


    7. Ich habe Sayed Kashuas Erstling heute fertig gelesen Ein Buch, an das ich hohe Erwartungen hatten, weil ich Sayeds Sicht auf die Dinge in seiner w chentlichen Kolumne in der Tageszeitung Haaretz sehr sch tzen gelernt habe Er ist f r mich eine authentische Stimme der israelischen Araber geworden, sein Humor, der auch in seinen schw rzesten Schilderungen durchbricht ist unglaublich, und seine erfolgreiche Sitcom Avoda Aravit hilft mir in letzter Zeit paradoxerweise inmitten der aktuellen Nahostkri [...]


    8. I m not sure what precisely inspired this choice, if it s the class on Middle East or the recent season of Homeland It s good to read different things, gain different perspectives This is a seemingly autobiographical ish story of a young Arab man torn between two ways of life and two clashing cultures in a forever unsettled settlements between Palestine and Israel As far as perspectives go, it s certainly interesting, especially depending on where you stand on the Zionist question As far as book [...]


    9. Satire tentang kehidupan masyarakat Arab Israel Buku ini menghibur namun juga mengungkapkan kepedihan atas kehidupan dengan kondisi konflik yang mereka hadapi Kashua mengungkapkan semua dengan cara yang terlihat jujur dan terbuka bahkan konyol, situasi dan pandangan bukan hanya dari sisi arab tapi juga yahudi Kashua meramu dari hal hal sederhana tentang kehidupan sehari hari, politik hingga situasi dunia muslim Cerita dimulai ketika sang nenek memberikan kepercayaan dengan menyerahkan kunci lema [...]


    10. Kniha o tom, jak se c t ob an druh kategorie, kte sice maj ob anstv , mohou volit a teoreticky cokoli, ale ve skute nosti jsou st le ti druz Ani nem ou svobodn nakl dat se svou p dou a pro silni n ch kontrol ch jsou diskriminov ni.Ji druh kniha od Sajjida Ka ui a op t moc dobr.


    11. This is a well written, sometimes entertaining, and finally dispiriting book about identity loss While the international news media may characterize Palestinians as either oppressed or villainous, depending on the political agendas of others, Kashua s portrayal of this novel s Palestinian Israeli protagonist forgoes the usual stereotypes His central character is both sympathetic and pathetic by turns.Carrying a blue identity card, which makes him an Israeli citizen, the novel s narrator tells of [...]


    12. Great book Coming of age story where the protagonist s struggle with his identities cultural, ethnic and national is a painful process that manifests in significant self loathing.As a fan of the author, Sayed Kashua s sit com Arab Labor, I find that a coming of age novel is a richer and deeper place to deal with the issue of self loathing In Arab Labor, we meet a self hating bafoonish Jew wannabee adult, Amjad, who is a successful journalist He s balanced by his wife who feels perfectly comforta [...]


    13. First novels these days often follow a similar form Narrated in the first person and appearing to be vaguely autobiographical, they consist of a string of fairly brief episodes extending across a childhood and early adulthood, terminating close to the young novelist s age at the time of writing Dancing Arabs, although written by a young Arab Israeli seemingly distant from American creative writing classes and workshops where the easier novelistic forms are disseminated, follows precisely this pa [...]



    14. After reading the profile of Kashua in the New Yorker a few months ago, I really wanted to read one of his books The storytelling is witty and dry and really brings the characters and neighborhoods to life so many discussions about Israel Palestine seem focused either on politics or theology and it s hard to get through that to imagine people s everyday lives in the midst of conflict.The chapters are sort of like anecdotes, I don t know that there s really an overall story arc other than growing [...]


    15. This one is hard to describe Primarily, it is a coming of age story of a Palestinian kid who goes to a Jewish school and learns to hate who he is and where he comes from His MC does remind me a lot of some of Sherman Alexie s characters, in the honest and jaded way that the MC viewed and judged himself, his family and his people Not a very likable MC but the really good passages made up for a lot of it and the ending managed to pull the disparate parts together.


    16. I didn t like this novel quite as much as Second Person Singular by the same author, but it is still a fascinating book The author explores the subject of Arab Israelis and their attempt to navigate both worlds This book is a little harder to follow than his later work and is a bit vague, but still highly readable.



    17. Hard to relate to the author and his autobiographical main character considering his father was involved in bombing the student cafeteria at Hebrew University My husband and I were students at Hebrew University Sorry, can t really sympathize with terrorists Especially who are mass murderers.


    18. A stark and sobering personal account of Palestinians living within the newly created State of Israel after 1948


    19. First I gave the book 3 stars But then I gave it 4 because it is going to leave an impression It s a sad book about alienation Alienation from family, religion, country and self It presents a reality that most of us have never experienced And it is implicitly political, because that reality is due to disfunction that is Israel and Palestine If you read this book, be forewarned leave your preconceptions and stereotypes at the door When you are done, they may no longer be relevant.


    20. I have read this book for four times Each time I read it, I have deeper understanding of the Palestine Israel conflict For the third and fourth generations of Palestinians who live in the State of Israel, the root of identity is in constant doubt This book presents such ongoing question of the protagonist s identity Shifting narrative temporality, humorous tone of narration, autobiagraphical stories combined with Grandma s stories and his father s stories Thought provoking and insightful



    21. lovely book depicting the complex, confusing, conflicting, and difficult realities and forces shaping one Palestinian Israeli Arab Israeli s life


    22. Coming of age tale about a young Palestinian boy who wishes he was a Jew don t understand why some reviewers thought this book was funny


    23. My limited exposure to Israeli literature has been from a Zionist point of view, many years ago, so this was a fascinating counterpart I have a feeling that I d have gotten much from the book if I were versed in the history of the conflicts the protagonist was experiencing yet even without that, the themes of human experience, of searching for one s identity in a shifting world, are things that I can relate to, despite the gulf between Kashua s world and my own.


    24. Ci sono libri che finita la lettura ti lasciano senza parole, a volte perch troppo insulsi, altre volte perch ti hanno cos tanto entusiasmata, rapita che quasi non riesci a dire nulla Uno di quest ultimi, per me, stata la lettura di oggi Sayed Kashua, Arabi danzanti.Avevo letto un po di anni fa un altro suo libro Due in uno e ne ero rimasta colpita, ho iniziato a cercare gli altri suoi testi, ma nulla, introvabili in libreria Ora, grazie ancora alla Biblioteca Lazzerini di Prato, sono riuscita a [...]


    25. El narrador empieza contando sus recuerdos de infancia y adolescencia en un pueblo rabe ocupado por Israel en la guerra de 1948 Supongo que son recuerdos en buen parte autobiogr ficos Al destacar en el colegio, le conceden una beca para estudiar en un internado hebreo, donde echa todo a perder tras enamorarse de una jud a que le deja por presiones familiares Posteriormente, se casa con una mujer rabe a la que detesta.Est narrado casi en forma de diario, con una dosis importante de humor pero con [...]


    26. Dancing Arabs has officially joined his previous The Catcher in the Rye, to my growing list of overrated books For a book that used to be banned from Jordan for cursing and mocking King Hussein, I believe they should rethink banning it for being too shallow and spinning in closed circle However, I thought when Sayed Kashua wrote the screenplay for its movie, he d at least CONSIDER containing the main plot Taking this silly thought into consideration, I was full of hopeful fantasies toward the bo [...]
