Sari Nusseibeh's extraordinary memoirs are now out in paperback.The story of Nusseibeh's family is the story of the Palestinian people.
These extraordinary memoirs give us a rare view into what the Arab-Israeli conflict has meant for one Palestinian family over the generations. Nusseibeh also interweaves his own story with that of the Palestinians as a people, always speaking his mind and apportioning blame where he feels it due. Hated by extremists on both sides, his is a rare voice.
'This autobiography carries the passion that might embolden ordinary Israelis and Palestinians to bypass the politicians and establish the peace that all but the armoured men desperately want.' - The Independent.
'Nusseibeh's formidable achievement leaves a drop of despair, because of how exceptional it is.' - New York Times.
