A rich and beautiful novel set during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in the early 1980s, and based on the author's personal experiences of the conflict.

We follow Ruba as she is trying to save her family in the midst of the civil war in Lebanon.

Her father stopped speaking and caring for the world and spends most of his time sitting in his armchair and staring into space. Her mother cleans and cooks, cleans and cooks, as if afraid that if she stops she might realise the ruin that her family has come to. And her brother has secrets.

"It is a beautiful story that analyses the madness of a civil war in a very interesting way. It raises an important question if you can (and should) lead a normal life when the world around you is falling apart. If you like poetic imagery and ephemeral style you should give "A Girl Made of Dust" a go." - Goodreads.

‘A moving insight into brutal conflict.’ - Financial Times.
