3 Reviews

The Israeli novelist David Grossman's impassioned account of what he observed on the West Bank in early 1987—not only the misery of the Palestinian refugees and their deep-seated hatred of the Israelis but also the cost of occupation for both occupier and occupied—is an intimate and urgent moral report on one of the great tragedies of our time. The Yellow Wind is essential reading for anyone who seeks a deeper understanding of Israel today.

This edition includes a new afterword by the author.

The Yellow Wind: With a New Afterword by the Author

User Review  - Not Available - Book Verdict

Israeli novelist Grossman offers his observations of fellow Israelis and Palestinians and the ongoing conflict that has spelled disaster for both. This reprint of the 1988 original sports a new afterword updating the story. Still a solid title on the subject. Read full review
