A searing portrait of Palestinian life and identity that is at once an exploration of Edward Said's unclaimable past and a testimony to the lives of those living in exile.
“Said writes to the photos so assiduously and with such effect as to make one powerful essay…We realize with a sobering lurch, he writes not to the pictures but from them: for he, too, is an outsider now. `The fact is,`Mr.Said writes, `that today I can neither return to the places of my youth, nor voyage freely in the countries and places that means the most to me.` It is in this dislocation that the work attains its power. And in this pain, too, the book finds affirmation.”
-New York Times Book Review
