Author Ben Ehrenreich (THE WAY TO THE SPRING: LIFE AND DEATH IN PALESTINE) discusses when he first began writing about the West Bank, and the ways in which Palestine surprised him. Read more about his book here: http://bit.ly/1VKPnPB
Over the past three years, American writer Ben Ehrenreich has been traveling to and living in the West Bank, staying with Palestinian families in its largest cities and its smallest villages. Along the way he has written major stories for American outlets, including a remarkable New York Times Magazine cover story. Now comes the powerful new work that has always been his ultimate goal.
In a great act of bravery, empathy and understanding, Ben Ehrenreich, by placing us in the footsteps of ordinary Palestinians and telling their story with surpassing literary power and grace, makes it impossible for us to turn away.
