Book Hour: The Hilltop by Assaf Gavron

0

An illegal West Bank settlement with characters described as sweetly as Garrison Keillor paints Lake Wobegon? A humorous bureaucratic mess managed by conflicted citizens fighting for their homes? A underlying shared fate despite a certain inevitability to a final outcome? Author Assaf Gavron has written a masterpiece that describes the many forces at work in Israel’s occupied West Bank. The characters are likable, the scenes are often funny (including a marvelous climactic ending), and the book serves to teach about the conflicts facing Israel over its policies. Listen to the author talk about his wonderful book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
