Review:

'A welcome reminder of the universality of human relations.' --The Guardian

'Tales that reflect that depth and the variety and universality of the Gazan experience.' --The Irish Times

'This is a collection that contains within its pages a more subtle thread than what we that is, those of us who do not know the feel of Gazan soil beneath our feet are used to, which is something altogether less subtle and more like a bold attack on our senses from time to time.' --Lacuna Magazine
