Overview

In these conversations with Tariq Ali, recorded in Edward Said's Riverside Drive apartment in New York in June 1994, about a decade before he finally lost his battle with cancer, Said brings his considerable intellect and deep personal engagement to bear on some of the most troubling and volatile issues of our time as he ranges back over his own dislocated existence, his initiation into politics, his involvement with the Palestine cause, his approach to the study of culture and his pervasive love of literature and music.

    STIMULATING BUT INSUFFICIENT

    This is a very readable book and stimulating too (especially on music), but I wish Ali had been more searching and critical in his questioning. I guess the two were good friends, but some of the weaknesses of 'Orientalism' needed to be probed and Said's views on Palestine should have been drawn out some more, given that he had begun to believe in a single-state solution.
