Customer Review

on 23 May 2010
mornings in jenin is an extraordinary book. i am someone who knows well the reality of the occupation, the history of palestinian dispossession and the overwhelming sense of injustice it has caused. i've worked with a number of organisations, both in israel and in the west bank. so, despite not coming from a place of ignorance, i was still emotionally devastated by abulhawa's words. i could close my eyes and see the people, the landscapes, feel the pain and the warmth, smell the air and taste the food. it is rare for a book to move me so. i realise that because of my personal attachment to palestine i would inevitably feel some emotion, but this book touched me deeply.

books have power to bring life and identity to issues which may seem distant to us. palestinians have suffered for many generations, and continue to do so. mornings in jenin is about humanity and the human spirit, the struggle against adversity. israel, in providing its own narrative to support the way in which it was established - through war, terror and brutality - has tried to erase palestinian history and identity. mornings in jenin succeeds in bringing to life a story rarely heard. this is a story which the world needs to hear.
