Praise for How To Understand Israel

By DCE Editorial Friday, November 5th, 2010
Sarah Glidden's debut HOW TO UNDERSTAND ISRAEL IN 60 DAYS OR LESS has received some stellar praise: “Incredible. . . . Should be required reading for anyone who waxes philosophical on the subject of Israel or anyone who wants to know more about the increasingly muddled situation abroad. . . . I's written in an insightful manner and drawn with an attention to detail you could only acquire by living through it.” —HUFFINGTON POST “A powerful retelling of Glidden's time on Birthright, during which she explores the landscape of one of the most complex places in the world, while being forced to rethink her own closely held political beliefs. . . . This is a book for anyone who has sought to understand the world around them and realized how much more there is to learn.” —AOL’s COMICS ALLIANCE “Charmingly illustrated and often very funny.” —NEW JERSEY JEWISH NEWS “This graphic memoir is beautiful; each image evoking as much emotion as Glidden’s memorable words. Glidden’s honest and challenging inquiry is a must-read for those examining their religious and political loyalties.” —BUST MAGAZINE "A major accomplishment." —NEWSARAMA “Packed with honest, engaging reflections about the Jewish state.” —AMERICAN JEWISH WORLD “Sarah Glidden is the remarkable cartoonist behind How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less--a book . . . that documents her experiences on a Birthright Israel trip in 2007, as she grapples with history, culture shock, and the looming question of Palestine.” —TIME/Techland “Engrossing. . . . An autobiographical account of one Jewish-American woman's experience traveling in Israel. History and preconceived notions clash with the reality on the ground. The result is a humorous and heartfelt look at one woman's journey of self-discovery in an unfamiliar land.” —IGN “A beautifully-illustrated book. . . . Once I picked up the book I was quickly absorbed by Glidden’s journey—so much so that when I finished I felt completely disoriented, I had forgotten I wasn’t actually in Israel.. . . . An emotional and involving read. . . . it really is about the journey rather than the destination. emotionally honest. . . . refreshing.” —THE FASTER TIMES HTUI_CVR_1.indd Pick up the book at your local comic shop this week or at your favorite book seller next week!
