Amiry's parents were among the thousands of Palestinians who fled from their homes in 1948; they went to Amman, Jordan, where the author was brought up before attending the American University in Beirut to study architecture. She returned to Ramallah as a tourist in 1981, but then she met Salim Tamari, fell in love, married him and returned to the city, now heavily occupied by Israeli troops. This book is an attempt to illustrate the life of a middle-class, Westernized woman in an occupied territory: the daily anxieties and struggles with curfews, roadblocks, barricades, body searches, gunfire, endless red tape, discourtesy and general harassment;not to mention the less than peaceful presence of a mother-in-law taken in for safety's sake.

One more question: Who's the next one? I can't find a list...?!?
Edit, March 12th: I am still shaking my head - it is simply too absurd to believe it! However, I admire her (sometimes really ironic) sense of humour to master everyday life under the given circumstances.
Edit, Match 17th: Finally I got to the post office...
