Editorial Reviewview “This is an important memoir, beautifully written by an intelligent, sensitive woman ... It should help those of us who do not understand why growing numbers of Muslims and not a few Christians have lost faith with Western pretensions of fairness.”—Financial Times “Keenly observed, fierce, honest and yet light of touch.”—Economist “Karmi’s great achievement is to humanise the Palestinian predicament. Violent uprooting and exile have permanent psychological effects, which, as the Jewish people discovered, are not necessarily assuaged by the passage of time. We need counter-narratives like this, because we have recently learnt that it is not only parochial but also dangerous to ignore the pain and rights of others.”—Independent “A very timely book in the current political situation ... This should serve to remind people just what the big fuss in the Middle East is all about.”—Ahdaf Soueif, Times Literary Supplement
