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.
