'My Husband is a Bus Driver'

I was delighted to find Palestinian writer Ala Hlehel's short story 'My Husband is a Bus Driver' online yesterday, after reading that he is now being allowed to go to Lebanon to attend the Beirut39 festival. Previously he had been told by Israel's Interior Minister that Lebanon could 'send him the prize by post'. My concentration is horrible just now, but this short story is a gem.
