With his spare but gripping prose, Yeshayahu Koren quietly portrays a small, hot Israeli village; a restless, bored housewife; and the events that lead, one by one, to tragedy. Koren's evocative style, translated into English by Dalya Bilu, makes palpable the stone walls strewn with cigarette butts, the dry thorns that scratch housewife Hagar's legs, and the awkward stance of Yiftach, the round-faced 10-year-old neighbor with whom Hagar explores the abandoned village. The novel's tone is thick with tension, the descriptions starkly sensuous, and an air of melancholy and mystery clings to the narrative. It's not an easy book to put down once you've entered its world 1st Edition Hardcoverin good condition.
