With the bombings between Gaza and Israel, and so much talk, Marcello Di Cintio’s 2018 book Pay No Heed to the Rockets: Palestine in the Present Tense has become all the more relevant. It’s a good primer for anyone interested in looking beyond the headlines to the people caught in this conflict. Marcello is from Calgary and he is very active on Twitter.
