Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A first novel written by PEN Discovery Award Winner Risa Miller, Welcome to Heavenly Heights describes a group of American Jews who have left the United States, not just to move to Israel, but to live in a settlement on the West Bank. Miller conjures a culture and a movement--part religion, part pipe dream--viewed through the pinhole of one ragged apartment building's door: its families, their dinners, their weddings, their marriages, their sorrows. While bombs can be heard at the edges of these pages, it is inside the settlement, Heavenly Heights where Miller's delicate, understated prose limns the lives of these tender souls.

Synopsis:

A PEN Discovery Award winner traces the lives of American Jews who live on a West Bank settlement. Miller conjures up a culture and a movement--part religion, part pipe dream--viewed through the pinhole of one ragged apartment dwelling family.
