(Not an abstract, just the first few sentences) 

Puncturing through the tired commonplaces of so much contemporary postcolonial and queer studies, Dina Georgis’s The Better Story develops an insightful and original method for thinking through the complicated link between psychohistorical trauma and cultural representation. Written with a rare combination of theoretical savvy and personal voice, the book works through a fascinating collection of contemporary texts marked by the history of European and Zionist/Israeli colonialism, the legacies of sectarian violence, and the emergence of neo-Islamic fundamentalisms and terrorisms in the West Asia region.
