Remarkable Novel

Beautifully translated by Dalia Bilu, this novel is a masterpiece in every sense of the word. A deep and very moving account of a group of young men thrown into a military training camp for misfits -- and the traumatic experiences they undergo. But this is not a heavy novel: it is lyrical, funny, satiric and gripping. The scandal of this novel is that it has not yet received the recognition it deserves, but my prediction is that this is a work that will last.


This is a real masterpiece. First Israeli novel I ever read, and what an awesome surprise. Kenaz, in his tour de force, demostrates Balzacian understanding of the human soul, and penetrating yet subtle prose. Sensitive, tragic, and full of hope. A real humanistic treat.
