Part One of an exchange between the Israeli-Palestinian writer Sayed Kashua and his friend the Jewish-Israeli writer and filmmaker Etgar Keret:
“I’m so afraid to stay here; what’s here for me if I can’t write? And what will I do without Hebrew, the only language I can write in? At first, I thought I’d learn a new language, that I’d drop Hebrew for English, and, believe it or not, the first book I bought here was yours. It hurts so much to realize that, in my search for new language, I don’t even consider Arabic, my mother tongue, a worthy option.”

The New World Shopping Mall has been abandoned since 1999. It shut its doors after being condemned by local regulators. A few years later a massive fire destroyed the structure’s roof. Not long after that monsoon rains flooded the lower floors.
As a way to combat the spread of mosquitoes and other insects breeding in the stagnant water, locals introduced koi and catfish to the former mall. Not only did the fish take care of the pest problem, they’ve thrived. It is now one of the world’s largest urban ponds.
