"Think the pinched aren’t polysyllabic?" You've never heard from Mexico
in this register. Nor moved through the East Village and Jerusalem,
Syria and Lebanon, with a guide who spies "what grows in broken
concrete." Ben-Oni takes us along borderlands and scenes we rarely hear
of in the news - to the very fringes of places like Sal Si Puedes (“Leave
if you can”) with its sandals, jellyfish, beer bottles and narcotic
wires, then into the marketplaces of melons and catcalls, with the
tongue of a Gypsy "incapable of candor."  This is exploration and
revelation via the road less traveled.
