A Depressingly Brilliant Read

by Tim on Nov 8, 2010

Megan's concluding explanation of 'being there but being elsewhere' is what will, most tragically, see the Middle East continue to tear itself apart. What happens there -- what we distant from it actively or tacitly support --ensures that the hatred and fear is passed on generation to generation. Religion, persecution and war are all human constructs rooted in the human desire to have power, in whatever form. The results are most tragic for those least able to resist. This is a beautifully written book about experiences that are anything but "beautiful". Meagn's use of language and through it her ability to bring us --- even drag us -- to the place and moment of which she writes gives us both a visual and emotional journey into the reality lived by these desperate people. It is not a political treatise but is explosively political for the zealots on all sides. Ideally, our future leaders and decision makers should be exposed to this and works of its quality for both their literary and appreciation-of-reality development.
