Raja Shehadeh – Occupation Diaries

SKU: 9050


Occupation diaries is award-winning author Raja Shehadeh’s diary of the two eventful years before the Palestinian bid for UN statehood in September 2011. A fierce and lyrical portrait of a life lived under siege, it addresses the big questions – When does co-operation become collaboration? Are any of life’s pleasures untouched by politics? – and records daily frustrations, ignominies and isolation, as well as loyalty, pride and moments of profound hope in adversity.
