Outlook: Claire Hajjaj

this evening (tuesday 29th), 10.06-10.30pm, on bbc world service radio (freeview channel 710)
outlook includes jo fidgen interviewing claire hajjaj about her childhood in kuwait, where it was necessary to conceal her jewish origin, though her mother made sure she and her brother did not lose their jewish roots …

Claire Hajaj grew up in Kuwait and the UK, in a very unusual family.
That’s because her mother is Jewish and her father is Palestinian.
Claire believes that although her parents’ relationship couldn’t ultimately survive the strain of their different backgrounds, as their child she can occupy the middle ground and give hope to others.
Her new novel, inspired by her parents, is called Ishmael’s Oranges.”
