Author Reading and Book Signing 

with Pamela Olson  
Fast Times in Palestine, 
A Love Affair with a Homeless Homeland  

For much of her life - like many Westerners - most of what Pamela Olson knew of the Middle East was informed by headlines and stereotypes. But when she stumbled into Palestine on a post-college backpacking trip, she found herself thrown with dizzying speed into the realities of daily life in the West Bank.

Harrowing, funny, vivid, entertaining and deeply humane, Fast Times in Palestine opens a rare window onto Palestinian life. It's impossible not to be moved on nearly every page.
     - Sandy Tolan, author of The Lemon Tree

I realize that without knowing it, I have long waited for this book, although I could not have imagined its lyric magic in advance of reading. 
     - Richard Falk, professor emeritus of                      international law at Princeton


What makes her story so compelling is that she tells it in an honest and straightforward way, not by relying on hot rhetoric. For anyone who wants to learn the truth about life under Israeli occupation, this book is a superb starting point.
