Book Description

10 April 2003
A Holocaust survivor's tortured son, a Bedouin boy who kills his father with a stone, a Russian immigrant who crashes his car and vanishes into the desert, a veteran of the Yom Kippur war left with agonizing memories of his fallen comrades...In these piercingly honest portraits, Sarna describes how Israeli men and women struggle to hold on to their identity, their sanity and their hope in the face of brutal and desperate conditions. Sarna's modern-day parables of flesh and blood and soil expose just what it is like to live in the underbelly of the Zionist dream and the profound human toll exacted in the process of creating a nation.

4.0 out of 5 stars exc ellent snapshot 8 Dec 2005
Format:Hardcover
a fine book which gives a really good idea of the human suffering in Israel on both sides - and the poetic shambolic appeal of the place. It is sad it has not been more widely reviewed. The author is a fine journalist.

Excellent and varied collection of short essays. Sarna deftly examines the contemporary Israeli psyche through a variety of disparate and somewhat tragic characters and their vivid experiences.
