Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

"Revenge helps answer the question, who are you? You are what you're willing to avenge," Laura Blumenfeld explained to Salon.com. A decade after her father, an American rabbi visiting Jerusalem, was shot and almost killed, Blumenfeld set out to find the man behind the attack. After locating the shooter, an active terrorist with a radical faction of the PLO, she wrote to him in prison without revealing her identity; investigated the surrounding community, both Israeli and Palestinian; and, uneasily, came to spend time with the shooter's family. Blumenfeld also interviewed hundreds of people, from Sicily to Egypt, prime ministers to prostitutes, to gain context and understanding of the motivations for redress. Her startling and moving conclusions rival the best in suspense fiction. In Revenge: A Story of Hope, Blumenfeld, a reporter for the Washington Post, combines a journalist's sense of story with a daughter's grief and compassion. Exploring the delicate tangle of vengeance and forgiveness, Blumenfeld looks deep into the darker — but omnipresent — impulses of politics, family, and love. Jill, Powells.com

Review:

"Laura Blumenfeld is the rare journalist whose prose is as elegant and engaging as her reporting is gritty and intrepid — one of the outstanding and most original voices of her generation." Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic and Baghdad Without a Map
