BOOK LAUNCH - MIRA SUCHAROV
In this gripping and honest memoir, Mira Sucharov shows what
a search for political and emotional home looks like. Sucharov
suffered from childhood phobias triggered by her parents
divorce, and she sought emotional refuge in Jewish summer
camp. But 3 years spent living in Israel in her twenties shook
her to her core. Ultimately, encounters with colleagues, stu
dents, friends and lovers force her to confront what it means to
be able to write, advocate and teach about Israel/Palestine in
a way that balances affirmation with authenticity. This engag
ing work builds on the authors successful voice as a scholar
and public commentator to find politically engaging ways of
discussing the Israel-Palestine conflict.
MIRA SUCHAROV is Professor of Political Science and Univer
sity Chair of Teaching Innovation at Carleton University. She is
the author or editor of five books and her many op-eds have ap
peared in Haaretz, The Forward, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto
MAX SUCHAROV is a psychoanalytic psychiatrist in Vancouver
with a special interest in both trauma and the socio-political
