Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Facing the Fires, Bernard Horn introduces A. B. Yehoshua, Israel's greatest living novelist, to an English-speaking audience. Yehoshua is also his country's most audacious thinker about politics, culture, history, and Jewish identity.<P>Yehoshua's achievement has been recognized throughout the world, and he has been awarded literary prizes in both Israel and the United States. A lively, controversial, and prophetic voice in his homeland, Yehoshua rigorously tests his community's deepest pieties: religion, Zionism, the agony of the Holocaust. He is a Jew who does not believe in God and a committed Zionist, and member of the "peace camp" in Israel who welcomed the Palestinian uprising of 1987.<P>In the tradition of the Paris Review interviews, Horn's conversations with Yehoshua reveal the intricate play of literary, psychological, mythological, and political motifs in the novelist's work. Stimulated by a warm friendship between the two scholars, the intellectual energy of Facing the Fires offers readers a pleasure they might expect only from fiction.

Book News Annotation:

These interviews with award winning Israeli novelist A. B. Yehoshua, conducted from January 1988 to May 1996, are presented in a thematic non-chronological format supplemented with commentary and context within the text. Using Yehoshua's works as vertebrae, the discussion ranges among topics such as Zionism, Palestinian rights, the Intifida, the Jewish Diaspora, the Holocaust, William Faulkner, Leo Tolstoy, psychoanalysis, and the meaning of the biblical story of the binding of Isaac.
