A late divorce
A father of three grown-up children comes back to Israel to get a divorce; another woman, pregnant, awaits him in America. Narrated in turn by each participant in the drama, events grow increasingly intense, coming to a head at the traditional family gathering on Passover. Translated by Hillel Halkin.
