Letters to Palestine: Writers Respond to War and Occupation (Paperback)Vijay Prashad (editor)
- In stock
This book traces this swelling American recognition of Palestinian suffering, struggle, and hope, in writing that is personal, lyrical, anguished, and inspiring. Some of the leading writers of our time, such as Junot Diaz and Teju Cole, poets and essayists, novelists and scholars, Palestinian American activists like Huwaida Arraf, Noura Erakat, and Remi Kanazi, give voice to feelings of empathy and solidarity-as well as anger at US support for Israeli policy-in intimate letters, beautiful essays, and furious poems. This is a landmark work of controversial, committed literary writing.

The growing recognition of the plight of Palestinians, and support for their struggle for their rights, particularly among younger people, is a welcome and important phenomenon. The contributions here both reflect these developments and should help inspire them. -- Noam Chomsky
A pretty miraculous compilation of essays and poetry . There is some beautifully rendered rage in this book that's been sitting in my chest ever since I put it down. * Jezebel ("The Best Things We've Read, Heard and Seen in 2015 So Far") *
