Winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2008
Shehadeh does a tremendous job ... one of the most compelling things you will read this summer.
He distills his pain and anger into eloquent prose, meticulously counting the ways he loves the land ... Palestinian Walks is no trite exercise in myth-making or propaganda.
Shehadeh is always engaging ... delivering what many activists neglect to mention: the odd, slightly absurd details that really touch people; things that appear off camera, away from news reports.
An important testament to political failure, never more relevant than today.
A new geography has come into being. This beautiful book is not just a guide to the Palestinian present; it is an Israeli album of what is taking place in a faraway land: Palestine.
