An ordinary Gazan s chronicle of the struggle to survive during Israel s 2014 invasion of Gaza
"The Drone Eats with Me" is an unforgettable rendering of everyday civilian life shattered by the realities of twenty-first-century warfare. Israel s 2014 invasion of Gaza lasted 51 days, killed 2,145 Palestinians (578 of them children), injured over 11,000 people, and demolished more than 17,000 homes. Atef Abu Saif, a young father and novelist, puts an indelibly human face on these statistics, providing a rare window into the texture of a community and the realities of a conflict that is too often obscured by politics."
