Transported as a young boy by his father's tales of Palestine, the author has always been drawn to the mystique of the Middle East. He was kidnapped and held hostage in the Lebanon for five years - only strengthened his determination to return and explore its myriad complexities. This title presents his story.


Transported as a young boy by his father's tales of Palestine, John McCarthy has always been drawn to the mystique of the Middle East. Remarkably, his first-hand experience of its brutal conflicts - he was kidnapped and held hostage in the Lebanon for five years - only strengthened his determination to return and explore its myriad complexities. In the years since his ordeal, McCarthy travelled through Israel and East Jerusalem, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the Bedouin encampments of the Negev desert. His intensely moving encounters with the inhabitants of this beautiful but tormented region reveal the continuing tragedy of the Palestinians who remained in Israel after its formation in 1948 - and who still dare to think of it as home. "You Can't Hide the Sun" weaves their vivid testimonies with McCarthy's own experience of living under constant threat. And in doing so it asks: how can humanity endure in the face of unimaginable oppression, and how can any of us thrive without a place of safety?
