Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The respected scholar and cultural critic describes growning up in Palestine, Egypt, and Lebanon and the family and diverse cultural factors that shaped his life. By the author of Orientalism and Peace and Its Discontents. Winner of the New Yorker Prize for Nonfiction.

Review:
"A beautiful and moving account that stands on its own in the art of memoir..."

Kirkus, 08/01/1999

Review:
"Several years ago, Said learned that he had chronic lymphocytic leukemia; some of his most moving passages depict illness as another kind of exile, one that threatens permanent separations. The diagnosis served as an impetus for this memoir....The result is a compelling portrait of a divided man....In attempting to integrate his two sides, Said has turned the writing of a memoir itself into perhaps the most profound type of homecoming a perennial exile can know."

Tara Bahrampour, Village Voice, September 1999

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Books. 201 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. From one of the most important intellectuals of our time comes an extraordinary story of exile and a celebration of an irrecoverable past. A fatal medical diagnosis in 1991 convinced Edward Said that he should leave a record of where he was born and spent his childhood, and so with this memoir he rediscovers the lost Arab world of his early years in Palestine, Lebanon, and Egypt. Said writes with great passion and wit about his family and his friends from his birthplace in Jerusalem, schools in Cairo, and summers in the mountains above Beirut, to boarding school and college in the United States, revealing an unimaginable world of rich, colorful characters and exotic eastern landscapes. Underscoring all is the confusion of identity the young Said experienced as he came to terms with the dissonance of being an American citizen, a Christian and a Palestinian, and, ultimately, an outsider. Richly detailed, moving, often profound, Out of Place depicts a young man s coming of age and the genesis of a great modern thinker. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780679730675
