9780156030168: The Liberated Bride

Yochanan Rivlin, a professor at Haifa University, is a man of boundless and often naïve curiosity. His wife, Hagit, a district judge, is tolerant of almost everything but her husband's faults and prevarications. Frequent arguments aside, they are a well-adjusted couple with two grown sons.
When one of Rivlin's students-a young Arab bride from a village in the Galilee-is assigned to help with his research in recent Algerian history, a two-pronged mystery develops. As they probe the causes of the bloody Algerian civil war, Rivlin also becomes obsessed with his son's failed marriage.
Rivlin's search leads to a number of improbable escapades. In this comedy of manners, at once deeply serious and highly entertaining, Yehoshua brilliantly portrays characters from disparate sectors of Israeli life, united above all by a very human desire for, and fear of, the truth in politics and life.

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

"A world-class writer at the height of his powers." --The Boston Globe

Yochanan Rivlin, professor of Near Eastern studies at Haifa University, is a man of boundless and often naïve curiosity. His wife Hagit is tolerant of almost everything but her husband's faults and prevarications. Rivlin's obsession with his eldest son's failed marriage proves to be one such problem. Why did his bride leave him, though to all appearances they had been at peace together?

While his wife warns him that the truth is always relative and often painful besides, Rivlin's search leads to a number of improbable escapades. In this comedy of manners, at once deeply serious and highly entertaining, Yehoshua richly portrays disparate sectors of Israeli life - Jewish and Arab, urban and rural, religious and secular, middle-class and lower-class, educated and uneducated. And characters with a very human desire for, and fear of, the truth in politics and in life.

"The pure craft of a writer in exceptional form." -- The Washington Post Book World

A. B. Yehoshua is the widely acclaimed author of numerous novels, including JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE MILLENIUM, FIVE SEASONS, MR. MANI, THE LOVER, and OPEN HEART. One of Israel's preeminent writers, he has been awarded the Israeli Prize, the Koret Jewish Book Award, and the National Jewish Book Award. He lives in Haifa.
