Product Details


“This short, powerful book should be required reading for anyone who has ever wondered what it’s like to be an ordinary citizen living in a war zone.” — Publishers Weekly

“Shehadeh’s voice is a rare one… angry yet dispassionate, comitted yet free.” — Michael Ignatieff

“Shehadeh captures the rage and despair of lives stunted by occupation.” — Washington Post 

“An intimate view of living under curfew, listening to gunfire and explosions, detouring around troops and roadblocks, and having one’s home searched or damaged. . . . Shehadeh is indignantly critical of Israel and does not much praise Palestinian leadership. Tragically jammed between the two are the aspirations and humiliations of nonmilitant Palestinians, which the author ably expresses.” — Booklist
