[A] distinctive account that shows the ongoing effects of the conflict on generations. Readers interested in seeing beyond stereotypes and political posturing will appreciate.
That Harris could immerse herself in this world and come away with a counter-narrative that overcomes the brutality, violence, and pain, and tells the story with great nuance and complexity, is a triumph of the power of stories and the perseverance of the storyteller.
Lis Harris s epic and epically beautiful real-life tale about two cultures, two religions, two families, trying to survive difference in a shared world is a monumental work carved out of rock, truth, and love. The deep and complex realities of Israeli/Palestinian daily life has had no better observer and no more judicious participant. A work for the ages.
Hilton Als, author of The Women
Lis Harris has written about a conflict in which the members of each side, acutely damaged by trauma, are so angry at the other that they can t listen. But Harris can. Wherever our sympathies lie, we have something to learn from this intensively reported and meticulously written account of two extended families who don t so much represent the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as help us understand its toxic effects.
Anne Fadiman, author of The Wine Lover s Daughter
In immersing herself so deeply in the complex lives and stories of both Israelis and Palestinians, Lis Harris accomplishes something extraordinary here: a moving and heartfelt account on a very human scale of the intractable struggle of two peoples who share one land. Harris allows us to feel the terrible price young and old on both sides of this conflict continue to pay. And she does so with great empathy and insight, in beautifully chiseled prose.
James Shapiro, author of A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
The world should thank Lis Harris for this brave, skillful, and generous-spirited work of reporting. The details of the two families contrasting lives, so clearly and empathetically observed, make for a page-turning story. Somehow maybe because of the author s own faith in the transcendent humanity of her subjects the reader comes away with a feeling of hope.
Ian Frazier, author of Great Plains
