Lt.-Col. Ichele, who is having fun by putting Lebanon on fire, has a weakness for military clerks. Having lost his favourite clerk in an absolutely unnecessary operation, he sets on a remorseless journey of vengence, recruiting private Jacob Zilberstein to help him. In the wild north of the first Lebanon War private Zilberstein, the perfect military clerk, turns into the glorious hero of a breathtaking novel, which interweaves delicate realism with crazy humour reminiscent of Catch 22 and mediterranean fantasy.

Shimon Riklin was born in Jerusalem in 1953. He is an editor in a large publishing house and has written radio plays, film and TV scripts, theatre plays and children books.
