501: The View From In Here

Jul 26, 2013
It's so easy to lose perspective (or worry you've lost perspective) when you're deep inside some situation. For instance, an American woman who suddenly trades her life for one in a place most people might think twice about: Juarez, Mexico.
  • In Israel, Sayed Kashua, writes a weekly newspaper column that are these very frank, entertaining conversations about his day-to-day life. A few years ago, he moved his family from East Jerusalem (where most of the Arabs in the city live) to West Jerusalem (where it’s almost all Jews, not Arabs) and that kind of blew people’s minds, his included. We hear from some of his columns, which are read by actor Ramsey Faragallah.

    Kashua’s latest novel is called Second Person Singular. (12 minutes)Neighbors/NeighborhoodsReligion
