'A born writer. It's like jumping inside someone's soul. Her relentless, undiluted humanity is inspiring and profoundly moving. And she makes you laugh.' - Alan Rickman
Rachel Corrie was a young American activist killed on March 16th 2003, as she tried to block the demolition of a Palestinian family's home in the Gaza Strip. She was twenty-three years old. Let Me Stand Alone reveals Corrie's striking fits as a poet and writer, and tells Corrie's story in her own words, from her earliest reflections as a preciously creative and assured young child to her final eloquent emails from Gaze. Above all, the book describes her growing political conscience - her desire to break out of a blinkered American perspective and make a difference in the world. it is not hard to imagine what extraordinary books she would have produced had she lived.
