Koko Hubara: Bechi

A groundbreaking debut novel from one of the most interesting authors of the generation.

How can you not destroy your own child? Why do two people remember everything so differently? And what are the things they would rather forget? Bechi is the story of a close, yet destructive relationship between a mother and a daughter, and of a desire to belong somewhere while also wanting to break free.
