The Way to the Spring : Life and Death in Palestine Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Profoundly powerful not only in observations and stories, but in how courageously and carefully it speaks to our present moment' Madeleine Thien, GuardianOver three years, journalist and novelist Ben Ehrenreich travelled to the West Bank's largest cities and smallest villages, and stayed with the Palestinian families who live there.

What follows is a testimony, a provocation, and an unflinching act of witness. 'I am gripped... Ehrenreich lived with many of those he writes about, and so his story is wonderfully intimate...

I feel more like I'm involved in a pacey novel than struggling to swallow yet more unpalatable truths' Observer'The myriad ordeals suffered by the Palestinian people during the last eighty years are minutely reported here.

It's a chronicle of their daily lives. Read it! It recognises and respects hope' John Berger'Capture[s] events unfolding on the West Bank with sympathy and restraint' Colm Tóibín, Irish Times
