Panorama of cultures

Three families, three generations, three cultures – one shared fate: in his bestseller »Piccola Sicilia«, author and Grimme Award-winner Daniel Speck took his readers on a journey to the heart of the Mediterranean. In his latest saga »Jaffa Road«, he expands this polyphonic panorama of cultures: Nina, a Berlin archaeologist, travels to Palermo to accept the inheritance of her missing grandfather Moritz. On that journey she encounters her Jewish aunt Joëlle – and a mysterious man who claims to be Moritz’s son: Elias, a Palestinian from Jaffa.
