Jerusalem, Drawn and Quartered is an exploration of Jerusalem by American-Israeli blogger Sarah Tuttle-Singer. Long known for her thoughtful and sometimes provocative blog posts about life in Israel, Tuttle-Singer embarked on this project by spending a year in Jerusalem, living for three months in each quarter of the Old City. Tuttle-Singer brings her raw honesty, dark humor, and intimate love for Jerusalem to life in this unique travelogue to give readers insight into the holy and contentious city at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Native: Dispatches from an Israeli-Palestinian Life is a collection of Sayed Kashua’s satirical Haaretz columns. Kashua is a Palestinian-Israeli writer and journalist best known for his humorous columns in Haaretz and his popular satirical sitcom, Avodah Aravit (Arab Labor), which both explore the turbulent day-to-day experience of living in Israel as an Arab citizen. Native transforms Kashua’s newspaper shorts into an autobiographical arc of life in Israel during the Arab Spring, rocket attacks, and the 2014 Gaza war that is at once wry, absurd, earnest, and exhausted. The inherent contradictions and absurdities of being Arab in Israel come to light as Kashua slowly comes to the conclusion that he must leave Israel.
