Part literary essay, part sleuth-work, this poetics of place meanders about Jerusalem and the ruins of Khirbat al-Mafjar near Jericho, piecing together in the process the broken lives of loners, pilgrims, poets, and explorers across the centuries–all waylaid in the Levant.
“A wonderful response to Jerusalem history, mythology and literature.”
