About this title in Hebrew

Survivors of the Yom Kippur war unable to return to the life they knew before drifting into the Sinai Desert, beach, and Bedouin settlements, ancient temples, poppy and cannabis fields. Here of all places, in this nightmarish and fragmented world, with the shadow of war hanging over it, a gentle and touching love story is woven between a naive soldier and a mysterious young girl. With tense restraint, using non-judgemental language clean from emotional flourishes, sketched with fine lines, Shezaf creates a believable weave whose transparency is not at the expense of its depth and richness.

Tsur Shezaf, born in Jerusalem (1959), is a well-known Israeli novelist and travel writer. Among his books are Leopard in the Hills, The Red Buddha, and The Silk Road. He also published guide books to Sinai, Egypt and Jordan, and contributes frequently to Israeli newspapers and television.

"Shezaf is the Jack Kerouac of the desert, a present day wandering Jew…"
