  • The award-winning graphic memoir about Israel that offers more questions than answers about identity and politics.

    Sarah Glidden is a progressive Jewish American twentysomething who is both vocal about and critical of Israeli politics in the Holy Land. When a debate with her mother prods her to sign up for a Birthright Israel tour, Glidden expects to find objective facts to support her strong opinions.

    During her two weeks in Israel, Glidden takes advantage of the opportunity to ask the people she meets about the fraught and complex issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but their answers only lead her to question her own take on the conflict.

    Simple linework and gorgeous watercolors spotlight Israel’s countryside, urban landscapes, and religious landmarks.

    With straightforward sincerity, lovingly observed anecdotes, and a generous dose of self-deprecating humor, “How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less” is accessible while retaining Glidden’s distinctive perspective.

    Over the course of this touching memoir, Glidden comes to terms with the idea that there are no easy answers to the world’s problems, and that is okay.
