Summary
A collection of eleven short stories, the protagonists of which are mostly Israelis of Mizrahi background (Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent). In illustrating the lives of those whose identities swing from fiercely patriotic to powerfully global, the author explores Israeli history even as she reveals the universality of war, love, heartbreak and hope.
