Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this stirring anthology of sixty poems from the Middle East, honored anthologist Naomi Shihab Nye welcomes us to this lush, vivid world and beckons us to explore. Eloquent pieces from Palestine, Israel, Egypt, Iraq, and elsewhere open windows into the hearts and souls of people we usually meet only on the nightly news. What we see when we look through these windows is the love of family, friends, and for the Earth, the daily occurrences of life that touch us forever, the longing for a sense of place. What we learn is that beneath the veil of stereotypes, our human connections are stronger than our cultural differences.

Synopsis:

This abridged paperback edition of the award-winning "The Space Between Our Footsteps" features the work of poets from 19 countries in the Middle East, and is important reading to promote tolerance and understanding.
