Book synopsis/description:

Suad Amiry’s hard-hitting & witty take on Palestinian homes in historic Palestine occupied by Israelis.

Politics enters the lives of every family in Palestine. In this literary-historical tour de force, Suad Amiry traces the lives of individual members of some Palestinian families and, through them, the histories of both Palestine and the émigré Palestinian community in other countries of the Middle East.

Amiry mixes nostalgia with anger while mocking Israeli doublespeak that seeks to wipe out any trace of a Palestinian past in West Jerusalem. She juxtaposes serial bombardments and personal tragedies; evokes the sights and smells of Palestinian architecture and food; and weaves for us the tapestry that is the Palestinian reality, caught between official histories and private memories. Through poetry and prose, monologue and dialogue, we glimpse the lost Palestinian landscape, obscured by the silent battle between remembering and forgetting.

SUAD AMIRY is an architect, and Founder-Director of RIWAQ: the Centre for Architectural Conservation in Ramallah. Amiry won Italy's prestigious Viareggio-Versilia Prize in 2004, and her first book, Sharon and My Mother-in-Law was long-listed for the Lettre Ulysses award for Reportage. She is the author of Menopausal Palestine: Women at the Edge (2010) and Nothing to Lose but Your Life (2011).
