of the stories he binds together in this kaleidoscopic and captivating book Apr Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.The interminable conflict between Arabs and Israelis, sadly, lends itself to visual images that reduce both sides to caricatures One of the treasures of this superb memoir is Birds determination to put a human face on some of the participants in this conflict His father, an American foreign service officer, brought his family to Jerusalem in 1956, and young Kai frequently passed through Mandelbaum Gate, the dividing line between the Israeli and Jordanian controlled sectors Over the next 22 years, he lived and traveled in Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon He seamlessly melds personal history and the story of his family within the turmoil surrounding them, which included three major wars, the spate of airline hijackings, and the prominence of Black September Although broadly sympathetic to Palestinian aspirations and suffering, Bird, whose wife is the child of Holocaust survivors, is also acutely sensitive to the fears and dilemmas faced by Israelis This is a deeply felt and moving
