Housebroken by Yael Hedaya
Book DescriptionThe men, women, and even animals in this collection live at the mercy of their hearts. Young and old, on two legs or four, they grope for love and tenderness, knowing that all connection is fraught with danger and all relationship random and evanescent. Yet the heart wants what it wants. The title novella, a wrenching account of the end of love, traces a gentle dog's transformation into a vicious beast as the couple who owns him breaks apart. In "The Happiness Game" the tenuous bonds between husband and wife are undermined by black crows and weak hearts, while "Matti "presents a chorus of voices doctors, nurses, jilted wife, dying husband that recounts an old man's passion for his lover, a fifteen-year-old Lolita. Wise and deft, "Housebroken" navigates the moments of decision, betrayal, longing, and jealousy that torment the souls of wounded lovers."

Eden, Paperback (March 2012)
Eden is no paradise: it is the stifling, rural community in which upscale urban escapees, the separated Alona and Mark reunite under the resentful scrutiny of Roni, Mark's needy adolescent daughter. Against the rich panorama of Eden's oldtimers and newcomers, Roni's father and stepmother are jolted out of their own absorbing concerns.
Accidents, Paperback (August 2006)» View all books by Yael Hedaya
For Shira Klein, Yonatan Luria and his daughter, Dana, it is winter. Yonatan is a marginal writer, a fifty-year-old widower left to raise his child alone. When he meets Shira, a bestselling author paralyzed by stage fright, the thaw begins as man, woman, and girl enter a halting romance, alternately tender and belligerent, generous and withdrawn.
