first 100 pages are interesting, then it becomes a litany of name dropping and unrelated anecdotes about people that only someone from Israel would know. Too bad the author is so self-absorbed that he could not write a memoire that would be of interest to people outside his own country.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. JUST A RAMBLING DESCRIPTION OF ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE THE AUTHOR HAS KNOWN.

This family saga tells the story of the author's childhood in a rundown suburb of Jerusalem during the period of Israel's formation and the subsequent turbulence. Peopled with a colourful array of characters--most poignantly his artistic mother who committed suicide when he was twelve--this memoir puts a human face on a continuing conflict.

This is probably one of the best books I've read. Childhood, history, land, emotions: everything connected
