Book Review by Amelia Smith
It's hard to imagine anybody living a normal life in Gaza. Frequently labeled the world's largest open-air prison, the Strip makes an appearance fleetingly on news reports around the time Israel launches military operations on the population there. From TV sets thousands of miles away this tiny area of land has been reduced to an image of violence, chaos and destruction. So what then do the people look like? Do they dance and sing with their friends? Do they sit and drink coffee and talk about love, films and music?
