Review

Praise for I Saw Ramallah 'An important literary event ... One of the finest existential accounts of Palestinian displacement that we now have' Edward Said 'The passionate pain of exile, recounted at the end of a day by a true poet' John Berger 'Outside any political faction, Barghouti manages to be temperate, fair-minded, resilient and uniquely sad' Tom Paulin, Independent

Because the author is a poet, it was beautifully written. Really brings up the tragedy of Palestine and how the people are suffering. So moving and sad.
