Global Post features Matt on Nablus, the Samaritans

The new U.S. website Global Post, which aims to provide Americans with the foreign news that they’re missing since their newspapers fired almost all their international correspondents, features a series of stories by me. They’re intended as introductions to my new Palestinian crime novel, THE SAMARITAN’S SECRET, colorful features about life for the Palestinians who feature in the book. The first article is about why I love Nablus, the most violent town in the West Bank. The second article tells how I came to know the remnants of the ancient Samaritans, living on a hilltop overlooking Nablus. Both articles include photographs I took of Nablus and links to video about the novel.
