What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Your Wife? : A Memoir Paperback
David Harris-Gershon and his wife, Jamie, moved to Jerusalem full of hope.
Then, mere days after Israel thwarted historic cease-fire negotiations among the Palestinians, a bomb ripped open Hebrew University's cafeteria.
Jamie's body was sliced with shrapnel; the friends sitting next to her were killed.
When a doctor handed David some of the shrapnel removed from Jamie's body, he could not accept that this piece of metal changed everything.
But it had. The bombing sent David on a psychological journey that found himdigging through shadowy politics and traumatic histories, eventually leading him back to East Jerusalem and the Hamas terrorist and his family.
Not out of revenge. Out of desperation. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, this fearless debut confronts the personal costs of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and our capacity for recovery and reconciliation.
