Life in PJ Pickelime's village is always a little out of the ordinary... just like PJ herself. There's the day Lemon Pie, a yellow warbler, comes to live in her bushy crop of black hair, and the morning PJ cuts her hair to help mop up an oil spill. There's the afternoon she makes sweet, memory-filled lemonade that draws people from blocks away, and the night she chats with owls in a barn full of honey. But PJ's spring is not all roses and rainbows, and sometimes unexpected events are too real.

THE PALESTINE PROBLEM was going to press when the Holy Day War broke out on October 6 1973 on the Jewish Day of Atonement and during the Moslem Feast of Ramadan. The war - bloodier than that of 1948, 1956 or 1967 - was the outcome of over six years of crises hallmarked by the inability of those involved to negotiate a peace settlement. In a quest to research the human side of the conflict, the author traveled Israel, the Palestinian territories, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon, seeking interviews with people on all sides, in government, outlawed political movements, the media, universities, refugee camps, homes in exile, and in trenches during civil war.
