Media reviews

“Keenly observed, fierce, honest and yet light of touch, Ms Karmi’s memoir of dislocation illlustrates just how inseparable, for many people, the personal and the political still can be.”—Economist

“Ghada Karmi’s compelling and beautifully written narrative is more than a personal memoir. It enables the reader to understand and to empathise with the psychological dislocation of exile that continues to fuel the Palestinian cause ...”—Karen Armstrong, Independent

“Karmi’s great achievement is to humanise the Palestinian predicament. Violent uprooting and exile have permanent psychological effects, which, as the Jewish people discovered, are not necessarily assuaged by the passage of time. We need counter-narratives like this, because we have recently learnt that it is not only parochial but also dangerous to ignore the pain and rights of others.”—Independent

“This is an important memoir, beautifully written by an intelligent, sensitive woman that fills a void in studies of Zionism. It should help those of us who do not understand why growing numbers of Muslims and not a few Christians have lost faith with Western pretensions of fairness.”—Financial Times
