I find this very interesting. Not just because I have read almost everything Agnon wrote but also because I knew a Nashashibi when I studied in Jerusalem 36 years ago. Zena was fascinating, smart, worldly and a very cool person. Now, perhaps, I understand why. I met some other members of the family back then as well - all very interesting people. Just a few weeks ago, when I was crossing HaMelekh George (near Yafo) I saw the stone put up on December 9, 1924 to commemorate the road's opening (Ragheb Bey El Nashashibi was Jerusalem mayor, Sir Herbert Samuel and Sir Ronald Storrs are also on the stone) and (as I do everytime I cross there) I thought of her and wondered where she is. And Jason, this does not delegitimize SY Agnon at all. Further, you are an idiot.
