Bill Holm and Cathy Sultan

In a compact collection of two dozen short essays and prose poems Bill Holm explores his life and, by extension, our lives, and how they flow together to make the life of a community, and then a country, and then a world.

Sultan, a native of Washington, D.C. lived in Beirut, Lebanon, from 1969 to 1983. Her memoir A Beirut Heart: One Woman's War, published by Scarletta Press in November 2005, recounts her family's survival during the Lebanese civil war. In her second book, Israel and Palestinian Voices: A Dialogue with Both Sides, published by Scarletta Press in March 2006, Cathy attempts to open eyes to the human realities of life in Israel-Palestine through interviews she conducted in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
