Strangers in the House: Coming of Age in Occupied Palestine by Raja Shehadeh
Shehadeh is a lawyer and writer living in Ramallah and the founder of the human rights organization Al-Haq, an affiliate of the International Commission of Jurists. Strangers in the House is a poignant memoir of the sense of loss that afflicted his parents' generation and his own relationship with his far-sighted but remote father, and of having to deal with his father's murder. Angry yet dispassionate, Shehadeh presents us with a rare introspection. Foreword by Anthony Lewis.
