Nora Khalil

A debut novel that portrays strong friendship, marginalization, longing, grief, and belonging with warm humor and scrupulous social criticism.

It’s a coming-of-age novel about Rayan, who is in that period of transition between junior high and high school, and a collective novel about young adults in Botkyrka, a suburb to Stockholm, their living conditions and hopes and dreams. A large story that evokes laughter as well as tears, and stays with the reader for a long time after.

Nora Khalil was born in 1997 and works as a teacher. She has received Tensta Konsthalls Prize for her writing.

 

”Here we find expressions for that feeling of alienation but also a liberating self-distance” BTJ
