Enter Ghost by Isabella Hammad

Staff Pick

Hammad’s second novel, which draws its title from a stage direction in Hamlet, is a blend of love story, family drama, and geo-political commentary. The protagonist, a British-Palestinian actress, travels to Haifa, Israel, to stay with her sister, a professor, and re-acquaint herself with the city where her father was born and which she has not visited since childhood. Grudgingly, she agrees to help stage a production of Hamlet in the West Bank. The experience forces a reckoning about her life choices, family roots, and the Palestinian cause. Hammad is an exciting, prize-winning young talent, and her new novel showcases why.
