Leihst du mir deinen Blick?
Following a suicide bomb attack on her local Jerusalem café, in which she and her friends could so easily have been its victims, a seventeen-year-old Israeli schoolgirl decides to send a message in a bottle to Gaza. An act of hope and desperation, Tal believes that by making contact with a Palestinian she will be able to begin a dialogue through which experiences can be shared, and, just possibly, some kind of mutual understanding achieved. Her message is found by a young man who calls himself Gazaman, and a remarkable email correspondence begins . . . A mesmerising account of a turbulent relationship conducted between two people whose dialogue is in itself an act of revolution against the situations in which they both feel themselves to be trapped.
