Description - Weeping Susannah by Alona Kimhi

A highly original, hilariously funny and moving tale of obsession and human frailty, set in a vivid melting pot of modern Israel. At 33, obsessive, hypersensitive Susannah Rabin lives with her mother, their cloistered world providing a barrier to the excruciating torment of human contact. But then Susannah's mother tells her that they are going to have a guest - Susannah's cousin, a young man from New York. Susannah is horrified. Until the guest arrives, looking uncannily like Percy Bysshe Shelley. Fascinated by his exoticism, Susannah finds herself going to movies, meeting his friends, swimming at night. But then Susannah's mother - and let's not forget that she was the one who invited him to stay - becomes troubled by their friendship, and asks the obvious question - "What ishe doing in Israel?
