'A rich tapestry of the personal, the literary and the political, skillfully woven by a sympathetic writer... Hoffman's intense but often humorous book is a powerful reminder of the singularity and complexity of this most intractable of conflicts and of the ability of the human spirit to be creative in adversity.' The Guardian. 'Veering between biography, history, journalism and memoir, this painstakingly researched work is a human-scale picture of the generally under-reported history of the Palestinians in Israel as well as an accessible introduction to their poetry... Ms Hoffman's book is unpretentious, principled and utterly charming.' The Economist. 'Adina Hoffman's writing is historical magic... A series of brilliantly told and searing stories, this is at once a page-turner and a book to be savored.' Maria Rosa Menocal, author of 'The Ornament of the World'. --The Guardian, The Economist, Maria Rosa Menocal

AS one reads, one shares pain which is a direct consequence of this early political and moral blindness. And then, one longs to read the poet's works.
This book is convincing and deeply thoughtful and the author deserves much thanks.
