I really loved this book by Sayed Kashua. The story is about a man who suspects his wife has been unfaithful and he’s searching for the “other” man. At the same time, it deeply explores Arab and Jewish stereotypes, difficult issues, and particularly, the concept of identity: who one is and what one can get away with saying one is.

An incredibly good read with a few surprising twists. It's hard to say something new about Israel/Palestine, but this book does. In this book identity is fragile and the enemy is the same as the beloved.
