Does the Land Remember Me?: A Memoir of Palestine (Arab American Writing)
This book is a heart-filled memoir of Mr. Aziz's trip to his homeland to visit his elderly mother after 4 decades of absense. His interaction with all of his relatives who were not able to leave Palestine provides a very personal glimpse of their lives and frustrations today. Unfortunately we lost this spokesman to cancer in October 2007.

Format: Hardcover
Palestinian/American Aziz Shihab goes back to his occupied homeland to visit his aging mother and to connect with some land he still owns. While there, he offers us a painful look at this renowned political occurrence. Shihab's passages are full of distressingly endearing encounters with Arabs and Jews (friends, enemies, and in-betweens). Many of these encounters are like dreams where things don't add up, but are pursued for some vestige of logic. Nevertheless, Shihab manages to incorporate a sense of humor into the tidings. One is compelled to turn the page and go on to the next scenario. Who among us has not felt powerless as the political winds shift directions? Aziz Shihab's book produces a lasting impression of this global consternation.

I purchased two copies of this wonderful book for Right to Read, which supplies universities in Gaza with the reading materials they need for courses. You can find a list of the books they still need here: [...] if anyone feels like helping out a great cause

I was deeply touched in having a desire in reading about Aziz's story of his native Palestine and how he comes back to hear the news of dying mother who lived to be 106 and he also explained his arrival to the United States and the experience he had whileliving there even the peoplehe, knew who are still alive, or have passed away I choose this rating because this book was worth reading and, I wanted to read about this person's life.

Readers must read his book and make up their minds for themselves. I knew him well from the time he came to this country until his death. We were neighbors; our children were in school together. He was devoted to his life, his causes, his family and his friends for his entire life. He was a journalist and a newspaper man. I admired him as a writer and as a good man. We were partners in a business venture. Aziz was scrupulously honest in every respect. I have only one regret: I can't see him again.
