Enter Ghost by Isabella Hammad is a captivating novel that explores themes of identity, displacement, and the power of art in the face of political strife. Set in present-day Palestine, the story follows Sonia Nasir, a British actress of Palestinian descent who returns to her ancestral homeland after years away.

Sonia's journey is one of rediscovering her roots and confronting the complexities of her heritage. She grapples with her own conflicted feelings about Palestine, a land she left as a child but that still holds a deep emotional resonance for her.

As Sonia reconnects with her family and the wider Palestinian community, she is drawn into the vibrant world of the local theater scene. She joins a production of Hamlet in Arabic, a daring project that takes on added significance in the context of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Through the lens of the play, Hammad explores the multifaceted realities of Palestinian life. The characters grapple with issues of occupation, checkpoints, and the constant threat of violence. Yet, there is also resilience, hope, and a fierce determination to preserve their culture and identity.

Enter Ghost is a beautifully written and thought-provoking novel that will stay with you long after you finish the last page. It is a powerful testament to the human spirit and the enduring power of art in the face of adversity.
