Shortlisted for the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, “The Dispersal” offers a poignant look at displacement and identity through the life of Dr. Wardiyah Iskander, an Iraqi physician. Initially committed to rural healthcare in 1950s Iraq, Wardiyah eventually relocated to France due to worsening conditions in her home country.

There, she bonds with her great-nephew Iskander, disconnected from his Iraqi roots. Inspired by her tales, he creates an online memorial to reunite displaced families. The novel captures the essence of family ties and the cost of division, encapsulated in Inam Jaber’s warm translation.
