From Our Editors

The only connection Edward W. Said has left with the country of his youth is a state of mind. In exile from Palestine and its surrounding countries, he describes the anguish of displacement and the power of affirmation. After the Last Sky: Palestinian Lives is an account of Said's personal struggle of maintaining a Palestinian identity and alleviating the nostalgia he feels for Palestinian life in his national homelessness. Full of stirring photos that Said explains with equally visual text, the stories and images will remained fixed in your imagination.

Editorial Reviews
