Ashes and Other Stories
A collection of 13 short stories set in an Israel of many moods shaped by its heritage and inhabitants, and written by a respected historian, whose fictional debut this is. In situations of humour and poignancy we are presented with an anatomy of Israeli society, a species of social tragi-comedy.
