Sunday, April 2 | 5:00-6:30PM | Location upon R.S.V.P.
The Israeli Book Club is more than just a typical reading group: it is an intimate encounter with Israeli culture, society and politics. Our next book is A.B. Yehoshua’s first novel, The Lover (1977). In the aftermath of the Yom Kippur War, Adam, a middle-aged Israeli with a wife and daughter, searches for his wife’s lover amidst the chaos of battle. Through Adam’s quest a dramatic series of events unfold, exposing tensions on all fronts: among family, between generations, between Jews and Arabs, and in the broader landscape of Israel. Register here
