Israel by Michael Gluzman

Book Description

There may be no place more blessed -- or burdened -- with narrative than Israel. In this country, story and place are inextricable. From stories set in the historical, holy city of Jerusalem to those that take place in the modern, secular city of Tel Aviv, from writing addressing the current "situation" to tales inspired by the timeless desert, this volume of sixteen short stories of Israel's finest new writers, and some of its best-loved ones, captures for the reader one of the world's most fascinating travel destinations. Contributors include Gafi Amir, Yossi Avni, Yosl Birstein, Orly Castel-Bloom, David Ehrlich, David Grossman, Shulamith Hareven, Etgar Kerrett, Yoram Kolerstein, Yitzchak Laor, Amos Oz, Ofra Riesenfeld, Gadi Taub, and A. B. Yehoshua.

US Kirkus Review » The latest in a new series whose recent volumes have portrayed, through representative contemporary stories, the cultures of Vietnam, Costa Rica, and Prague. The 16 pieces here, which are arranged by geographical area (for those who may want to carry a copy of the work along while visiting the country) and theme, include work of the 1980s and '90s (much of it previously untranslated) from such celebrated figures as Amos Oz, A.B. Yehoshua, Shulamith Hareven, and David Grossman - and, most memorably, two terrific offerings by lesser-knowns: Yehudit Katzir's crisp, haunting "Closing the Sea" and Yosl Birstein's elegiac "The Writer A.M. Fuchs Was Already Old." This is a good idea, done well. (Kirkus Reviews)
