Brandt travels to Jerusalem to visit a friend and to witness the intifada of occupied Palestine.'The good writers offer something new'new to them and new to you. Here Di Brandt collects three long poems that bring honour to our culture. The title sequence is a marvellous achievement. It is a love story filled with hope, yearning, beauty and sadness. I have never seen Palestine so clear.''George Bowering
