by John McCarthy - £10.99 Transworld Publishers Ltd (Black Swan) (2013)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780552774475 | ISBN 10: 0552774472
Held hostage for many years by terrorists in Lebanon, John McCarthy is all too familiar with the pain and injustice of being denied your home. Determined to understand the day-to-day complexities of being a Palestian-Arab in modern-day Israel, he embarks on a deeply personal journey from the shores of the Mediterranean to the desert landscape of the Negev.
He discovers the hidden stories of the ordinary people who must live out their lives in the shadow of a brutal conflict, and asks the vital question – how does humanity endure under such great oppression?
