"Louisa Waugh has written a book that celebrates Gaza, its joys, its iron will to survive in the face of adversity, and the humour that sustains its people."-Raja Shehadeh "Moving and fascinating. . . . Because Waugh stays so long I''ve begun to feel I know what life is like there, the weariness and terror, the unexpected pleasures, and the many, many invitations to dinner."-Esther Freud Do Gazans ever have fun? Is the Strip beautiful? And do TV reports actually reflect ordinary life inside the world''s largest "open air prison"? From beautiful beaches to sealed borders, from a secret New Year''s Eve party to a lingerie market staffed entirely by men, award-winning writer Louisa B. Waugh paints an intimate picture of Gaza, revealing the pleasures and pains, hopes and frustrations of Gazans going about their daily lives. Meet Me in Gaza is an evocative portrait of a Mediterranean land and its people, and a touching account of what it means to be Gazan. Louisa B. Waugh lived and worked in the Gaza Strip from December 2007 to April 2009. Her other works include Hearing Birds Fly: A Nomadic Year in Mongolia, which won the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize in 2004, and Selling Olga: Stories of Human Trafficking and Resistance. She lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.
