Surprisingly funny, and refreshingly different from any other writings on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, "Sharon and My Mother-in-Law", describes Suad Amiry's experience of living on the West Bank from the early eighties to the present. Amiry tells us about the life and gossip of her neighbourhood in Ramallah, her moving family history, and the struggle to live a normal life in an insane situation; from the impossibility of acquiring gas masks during the first Gulf War to her dog acquiring a Jerusalem Passport when thousands of Palestinians couldn't. The book contains a diary Amiry kept during the Israeli invasion of Ramallah in March 2002, when her feisty 92-year-old mother-in-law came to live with them. Suad Amiry has written a wonderful and funny book about the absurdity (and agony) of life in the Occupied Territories.
