The Confessions of Noa Weber

The Confessions of Noa Weber Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed author Noa Weber has a successful “feminist” life: a strong career, a wonderful daughter she raised alone, and she is a recognized and respected cultural figure. Yet her interior life is bound by her obsessive love for one man—Alek, a Russian émigré and the father of her child, who has drifted in and out of her life.

Trying to understand—as well as free herself from—this lifelong obsession, Noa turns her pen on herself, and with relentless honesty dissects her life. Against the evocative setting of turbulent, modernday Israel, this examination becomes a quest to transform irrational desire into a greater, transcendent understanding of love.

The Confessions of Noa Weber introduces a startlingly talented writer in a rich tale that illuminates the desires, yearnings, and complexities of life in Israel.

Gail Hareven teaches writing and feminist theory. Hareven has written five novels, three collections of short stories, plays, a book of non-fiction and two books for children. In 2002 she won the Sapir Prize for Alek. This is her first book to be translated.
