UNVEILED How an American Woman Found Her Way Through Politics, Love, and Obedience in the Middle East

by | Read by Suzanne Toren

Biography & Memoir • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Suzanne Toren's voice is resonant and robust, perfect for the portrayal of Deborah Kanafani, a survivor if there ever was one. Troubled by her parents' divorce and her charming father's arrogance, she is swept off her feet by Palestinian Marwan Kanafani, chief advisor to Yassir Arafat. She courageously admits marital unhappiness, pursues divorce, and then fights for custody of her children by moving to the West Bank. Kanafani brings us portrayals of other strong women, such as Arafat's wife, Suha, and Queen Dina of Jordan, who help Kanafani fight for her children and aid Middle-Eastern women who struggle for independence and safety. Toren's perfectly pronounced light-Middle-Eastern accents take us to faraway lands, make politics personal, and help us see Kanafani's Lebanese background and Palestinian experience.
