Mr Home, My Prison is the passionate, controversial autobiography ofa Palestinian journalist well known for her outspoken support of her people's rights. Raymonda Tawil's book makes clear in personal terms just what damage the Middle East conflict has wrought and what it means for Arabs to live under Israeli occupation. At the same time, her book is as much about the struggle for women's rights as it is about Palestinian rights.
