Product Details

Praise

“[D]istinctive…The Unlikely Settler is, well, unsettling.” —BookList

“A touching personal delineation of divided loyalties and riven hearts.” —Kirkus

“Personal drama and inner conflicts are intertwined naturally with the dramas and conflicts of the outside world in this emotionally moving memoir.” —Zeruya Shalev, author of Thera and Husband and Wife

“It’s fascinating and refreshing to see everyday life in Jerusalem through the sharp, affectionate eyes of Lipika Pelham as she encounters and befriends Zionists, Ultra-Orthodox Haredis, Arab Jews, left wing intellectuals, Israeli Arabs, Palestinians, Bedouins, Christians, expatriates and international peace-keepers in this city of warring sides and emotional flare-ups. It helps to understand the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” —Claudia Roden, author of The Book of Jewish Food

 “Pelham achieves deep insights into the respective woes and guilt of her Palestinian and Israeli friends.” —Between the Covers
