In 1998 Barghouti returned to the Occupied Territories. Barghouti weaves into his account of exile poignant evocations of Palestinian history and life - the pleasure of coffee, arriving at just the right moment and as an exile, the importance of being able to say, 'I was born here', rather than 'I was born there'.
