Acclaim

“On the 50th anniversary of Israeli occupation of Palestine, top writers bear witness to oppression and despair… Moving, heartbreaking, and infuriating, testifying to the chilling cruelty of Israel’s policy toward Palestinians… Deeply unsettling, important stories call for urgent responses to the Middle East conflict.”
— Kirkus, starred review

“This sensitive, galvanizing, and landmark gathering brings the occupation into sharp focus as a tragedy of fear and tyranny, a monumental failure of compassion and justice, a horrific obstacle to world peace.”
— Booklist, starred review
