My Family Tree

Kind of an amazing image — with all of the Arabic text.

I just decided to cut it from the novel — in part because my editor suggested that the description of the tree, in the text of the story, does more than the image, itself.

We got this from Aleppo during the period when my dad and my brother were hunting for a family inheritance they thought had been confiscated by the Turkish government…

An interesting story, in and of itself.
