There may be no place more blessed — or burdened — with narrative than Israel. In this country, story and place are inextricable. From stories set in the historical, holy city of Jerusalem to those that take place in the modern, secular city of Tel Aviv, from writing addressing the current "situation" to tales inspired by the timeless desert, this volume of sixteen short stories of Israel's finest new writers, and some of its best-loved ones, captures for the reader one of the world's most fascinating travel destinations. Contributors include Gafi Amir, Yossi Avni, Yosl Birstein, Orly Castel-Bloom, David Ehrlich, David Grossman, Shulamith Hareven, Etgar Kerrett, Yoram Kolerstein, Yitzchak Laor, Amos Oz, Ofra Riesenfeld, Gadi Taub, and A. B. Yehoshua.

Synopsis:

"A perfect way of looking into a country, inside its houses and apartment buildings, at its weddings and feuds and even wars".--"Na'amat Woman". "Collectively, the pieces present a view of Israeli life seldom encountered by tourists or other outsiders".--"Library Journal. Map.
