In his prize-winning Palestinian Walks, Palestinian writer, lawyer and nature lover Raja Shehadeh described how politics and occupation have changed the simple act of taking a walk.  In his most recent book, the new edition of Strangers in the House he tells of the experience of his family, driven from their home town of Jaffa to Ramallah in 1948; of his own work as a lawyer and peace activist; and of his complex relationship with his father, a leading civil rights lawyer who was murdered in cold blood by a Palestinian collaborator with the Israeli authorities (who failed to investigate the murder properly) he again combines the personal and the political to devastating effect.

Kamila Shamsie is a Pakistani writer living in London. She has written five books including In the City by the Sea, Kartography and most recently, Burnt Shadows an astounding epic novel that was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction.
