Encounters in Gaza.
[Place of publication not identified] : Eland, 20131231.
Over the Summer of 2011, Dervla Murphy spent a month in the Gaza Strip. She met liberals and Islamists, Hamas and Fatah supporters, rich and poor. Through reported conversations she creates a vivid picture of life in this coastal fragment of self-governing Palestine. Bombed and cut-off from normal contact with the rest of the world, life in Gaza is beset with structural, medical, and mental health problems, yet it is also bursting with political engagement and underwritten by an intense enjoyment of family life. During her month by the sea, Dervla develops an acute eye for the way in which isolation has shaped this society. "The light she sheds on one of the world's greatest humanitarian crises is as moving as it is invaluable."--Booklist Sept. 15, 2013
