Diana Abu-Jaber

dianaabujaber.com

Diana Abu-Jaber was born in Syracuse, New York to an American mother and a Jordanian father. When she was seven, her family moved to Jordan for two years, and she has lived between the US and Jordan ever since. The struggle to make sense of this sort of hybrid life, or “in-betweenness,” permeates Abu-Jaber’s fiction. Abu-Jaber received her MA from the University of Windsor. She later attended SUNY-Binghamton for her PhD.
Her first novel, Arabian Jazz—considered by many to be the first mainstream Arab-American novel—won the 1994 Oregon Book Award. Her forthcoming work of fiction, Fencing with the King, is a novel of Middle Eastern intrigue and suspense. Masterfully drawing on King Lear and Arthurian fable, Fencing with the King will explore the power of inheritance, the trauma of displacement, and whether we can release the past to build a future.
