Pay No Heed to the Rockets

by Marcello Di Cintio (Author)

  • Pay No Heed to the Rockets tells a fresh story about Palestine, one that begins with art rather than war, and one that intentionally avoids depicting Palestinians as merely one-half of the Israeli/Palestinian binary
  • For readers who loved Reading Lolita in Tehran and the travel writing of Paul Theroux or Ben Ehrenreich, Pay No Heed to the Rockets is in the company of works by literary giants like Mahmoud Darwish and Ghassan Kanafani
  • The author's last book, Walls, was named one of The Globe and Mail's best books of 2012, and won the Wilfrid Eggleston Award for Nonfiction, and received widespread critical acclaim
  • 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the Arab-Israeli War, and now is the time to rethink our approach to truly understanding the people who inhabit Palestine
  • Robust marketing outreach planned to libraries and independent bookstores
  • Shelf Awareness, ALA Annual, Goodreads, social media, and other giveaways planned
