In this gripping and honest memoir, Mira Sucharov shows what a search for political and emotional home looks like. Sucharov suffered from childhood phobias triggered by her parents’ divorce, and she sought emotional refuge in Jewish summer camp. But three years spent living in Israel in her twenties shook her to her core. Ultimately, encounters with colleagues, students, friends and lovers force her to confront what it means to be able to write, advocate and teach about Israel/Palestine in a way that balances affirmation with authenticity.

"Reading Mira Sucharov's deeply self- reflective Borders and Belonging makes me reach into the annals of my own memory, in part because so much of my story resembles hers. ... Many readers will want Sucharov to take a stand. They will want her to provide irrefutable evidence, as a scholar ought to do." (Karen E. H. Skinazi, Literary Review of Canada, Vol. 29 (4), May, 2021)
