Nothing To Lose But Your Life
Nothing To Lose But Your Life: An 18-Hour Journey With Murad by Suad Amiry
A tomboy at heart, driven by adventure and a desire to understand what her less privileged compatriots go through, Suad Amiry disguises herself as a man and crosses the Israeli border illegally to seek work in the Israeli town of Petah Tikva. The eighteen-hour journey that she braves with Murad and his brother Mohammad starts with a bumpy late night ride in a bus crammed with other illegal workers - all men - whose endless stories are both horrifying and amusing.
Nothing To Lose But Your Life is an exhilarating account of Suad's journey but also a lamentation for lost land and for simpler, more peaceful times.
