Adina Hoffman’s Jewish Quarterly-Wingate-Prize-winning biography of Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali is a moving account of the ways “ordinary” individuals are swept up by the floodtides of both war and peace.

Hoffman's beautifully written book, My Happiness Bears No Relation to Happiness, tells the story of an exceptional man and the culture from which he emerged. It also reflects on the often alchemical means by which experience is transformed into art.
