Editorial Reviews

Review


“Extraordinary power… Funny, passionate, bristling with idealism and luminously intelligent.” – TimeOut London

“Deeply moving… The directness, the humor, the poetry, the capcious-yet-never-morbid conscience: all of these are beautifully captured.” – Indepndent (London)

“You feel you have not just had a night at the theatre: you have encountered an extraordinary woman [in this] stunning account of one woman’s passionate response… Theatre can’t change the world. But what it can do, when it’s as good as this, is to send us out enriched by other people’s passionate concern.” – Michael Billington, Guardian (London)

“An impassioned eulogy… It’s hard not to be impressed – and also somewhat frightened – by the description of her as a two-year-old looking across Capital Lake in Washington State and announcing, ‘This is the wide world, and I’m coming to it.’” – Matt Wolf, New York Times

FOUR STARS: “Cerebral or emotional, however, you cannot come away without plenty to think about.” – Raymond Whitakar, Independent

“Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner, who have edited Corrie’s writings, offer a fully rounded picture of this passionate, idealistic and at times infuriating young woman… quarrelling with Corrie’s occasionally glib convictions, even as you admire her courage, lends the show dramatic tension, and forces you to try to tidy up your own muddled thinking on this vexed subject. And there is no doubt that Corrie was a natural writer, who described life in Gaza with rare power and precision. One leaves the theatre mourning not only Rachel Corrie’s death but also one’s own loss of the idealism and reckless courage of youth.” – Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

FOUR STARS: “My Name is Rachel Corrie is a true and profoundly moving story. As a piece of theatre, it belongs to verbatim genre, pieced together by Alan Rickman and the journalist Katherine Viner from the diaries, e-mails and lists of extremely articulate, committed, courageous idealist Rachel Corrie. This drama is many things. It’s a piece about growing up in America today, it’s a piece about the nature of heroism; it’s a beautifully written and structured chronicle of a death of a foretold.” – Georgina Brown, Mail on Sunday

By Robin N. McMahon on February 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
I think that this book has the ability to capture a person's attention on an emotional level as well as a political one. Rachel Corrie was a very profound writer, even as a teenager. In this book you get to experience her life the way that she did. She was a very special person and you can see that as you read this book. It was a tragedy the way she died, and I think that this book kind of does her memory some justice.

This tiny 52 page book is one of the most important pieces that I have read in my life. Rachel Corrie's writing, backed up by her work as a 5th grader and as an adult, is humbling. Alan Rickman's editing and placement is briliant.

This book should be on every book club's list and on every thearter company's stage.

This book. This story. This life. This world-- it's all in there. It should be part of social science curriculum in high schools and colleges. Rachel was a person of conviction. Her life and witness inspire us all.

A young woman with a passion for life and for human rights, Rachel Corrie was a activist who went to Palestine in an attempt to make things better for the Palestinian people. She stayed with families as she did her relief work. Sadly, one day as Rachel stood in front of a Palestinian doctor's home to defend it from the Israeli bulldozers, a bulldozer rolled right over her, killing her instantly. This short book is an amazing collaboration of two British playwrights telling Rachel's story through newspaper reports as well as Rachel's own journals which were provided by her parents. As a play it had a good run in London. As a book, it is deeply moving and very personal. I highly recommend it.

Rachel Corrie's communications in the weeks preceding her death, herein collected, are among the most elegant of testimonies to what is best in the human spirit. Rachel wrote, as she lived, for what counts, with precision, passion, and single-minded devotion.

Ms. Corrie belonged to the ISM (International Solidarity movement), not the PSM. The ISM is an organization dedicated to non-violence.

Because of the youthful exuberance, which is not naivety, of Rachel Corrie's words, taken from her journals and e-mails to folks "back home," this drama does proceed deeper, and deeper into the mind and actions of a young woman on her personal crusade to do something about the lives of virtual strangers. Dramatists have put together an excellent portrayal of Rachel and some of the conflicts of her life experience.
