In which I gush with thanks and joy, as my new book, Meet me in Gaza, is published and has already garnered great reviews

My new book has just been published!

I am so delighted to introduce Meet me in Gaza to the world: there is much celebrating to do – this has been a long hard beautiful journey to publication – but I will write again very soon. In the meantime, there have been some cracking reviews – from the Sunday Times, the ‘life in books’ website – – and I will be on Radio 4 ‘Open Book’ on Sunday June 9th at 4pm, discussing travel writers who live in places, as opposed to passing through them, with Mariella Frostrup. So listen in!

I am also doing a reading at 7 pm on Monday June 10th at Woolfson and Tay bookshop, on Bear Lane in Southwark: and you are most welcome to join us. – just please send me an email if you are coming, so I can make sure there are enough chairs and drinks!

See you soon, Louisa!

    Enjoyed your other work so I intend to put an order in for your new book today. Always challenging, always entertaining, never one to tackle easy subjects. Good luck with your next project too, whatever that may be.

    • Hi Ian – thanks for getting in touch, and I’m really glad you’re going to read my new book! Hope you enjoy it, and that you’re having a wonderful hot summer in Blighty! As you probably know, I’m in central Africa at the moment, which is going to be hot all year round! love to you and Lyne XX

    lovely book Louisa, best yet. Honest and humane; transcends dirty politics; loved the way you manage to convey what it’s like in Gaza and still show the essential humanity of the people. You have a gift.
