Raja Shehadeh

Thu 9 Feb 2017

Raja Shehadeh is Palestine’s leading writer, a lawyer and human-rights activist, and the winner of the 2008 Orwell Prize (for Palestinian Walks). His latest work,Where the Line is Drawn, uses reportage, analysis and memoir to explore the devastating effect of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and ask whether bitter enemies can ever forge a common future. Brave and controversial, he talks to the writer and translator Daniel Hahn about the book and a life in which it has become impossible to escape politics or the past.
