Nothing to Lose But Your Life by Suad Amiry

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, architect and university professor Suad Amiry disguises herself as a man and crosses the Israeli border illegally to seek work in the Israeli town of Petah Tikva. The 18-hour journey that she braves with Murad and his brother Mohammed 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 a vivid account of a grueling journey but also a lamentation for lost land and for simpler, more peaceful times.
