Israeli magical realism. Now, I love me some magical realism, and this book is one of the finest examples Ive come across in a long, long time. As a new resident of Israel - and one without previous ties to the country - I really didnt know that much about the early history of the state. The book is set in a moshav (the less famous type of Israeli farming commune), and introduces the history without the historical events...you get a feel for the period without the usual event-dropping that comes up a lot in historical fiction.

There is a bit of name-dropping, but Israel is a small country...its realistic that they would be interacting with the founding fathers of the state.But Shalev isnt interested in the history of the period as much as the spirit.

And hes read his Garcia Marquez - the feel of the book is very reminiscent of 100 Years of Solitude or Love in the Time of Cholera, but without being derivative. Heartily recommended, although Im not sure how easy it is to find outside of Israel.

Im always glad to loan out my copy, though :)
