Product Description:

You sit at dinner with charming people in a dining room like any other. Yet you know that your hostess has lost a son and that her sister lost children in the 1973 war. A fact of Jewish life left unchanged by the creation of a Jewish State is that, You cannot take your right to love for granted.

Review:

"Bellow evokes places, ideas, people...on the edge of history, an inch from disaster, yet brimming with argument and words.... An impassioned and thoughtful book." -"The New York Times Book Review" "Essentially a plea for a greater understanding of the state of Israel by one of its most articulate admirers." -"The Times"
