Description

"Elusive, haunting."--New York Times Book Review A husband's search for his wife's lover, lost amid the turbulence of the Yom Kippur War, is the heart of this dreamlike novel. Through five different perspectives, Yehoshua explores the realities and consequences of the affair and the search, laying bare deep-rooted tensions within family, between generations, between Jews and Arabs. "[A] profound study of personal and political trauma." --Daily Telegraph "Has the symmetry of an elegantly cut gem." --The New Yorker

A strange book, the search for a vanished man. Somewhat inconsequential.
