Reviews:

“This is a fine, compelling report, in which all facets of what seems an insoluble problem are treated with sympathy.” – The New Yorker

“Grossman has crossed one of the world’s deepest divides in order to encounter Israel’s Arab minority.” – The New York Times Book Review

“No other Israeli writer so far has approached this touchy subject with such compassion, or looked at it with, so to speak, bifocal eyes.” – The New York Review of Books
