Books Info:

Sharon and My Mother-In-Law free pdf Based on diaries and e-mail correspondence that architect Suad Amiry kept from 1981 to 2004, "Sharon and My Mother-in-Law "evokes"the frustrations, cabin fever, and downright misery of daily life in the West Bank town of Ramallah. Amiry writes elegance and humor about the enormous difficulty of moving from one place to another, the torture of falling in love with someone from another town, the absurdity of her dog receiving a Jerusalem identity card when thousands of Palestinians could not, and the trials of having her ninety-two-year-old mother-in-law living in her house during a forty-two-day curfew. With a wickedly sharp ear for dialogue and a keen eye for detail, Amiry gives us an original, ironic, and firsthand glimpse into the absurdity -- and agony -- of life in the Occupied Territories.
