This review is from: When I Lived In Modern Times (Kindle Edition)
By writing a novel set at the beginning of the Israeli state, immediately after WWII, from the perspective of a young Jewish woman full of hope for the future, Linda Grant manages to highlight many of the issues that have caused such strife through the 20th century in a way that allows us to understand the behaviour of all involved.
